    See MP1-4750.

    Those changes apply to our HID input handler configuration.
    Users with custom configuration will need to integrate those changes manually.

    We had situation where the mute button on your remote did not work reliably. This change should be fixing that by letting the OS deal with any volume control commands. @JJDoherty will be happy to see this integrated in the next release.

    Also part of that change is the addition of 3 buttons mapping to close MediaPortal. See the following post about this issue from @fischy667.
    1. TvPower
    2. Ext11
    3. AppCtrlExit

    May I suggest that it would be useful to add an "Eject CD" definition to the Generic HID configuration? Reasons:

    (1) Some remote controls have a dedicated "Eject" button (e.g. the Hewlett-Packard).
    (2) There is a code that WMC accepts and actions (see referenced thread).
    (3) There is already a MediaPortal remote-control action called "EjectCD".
    (4) Several users would like to use this capability.

    See this thread:

    Is it not there already? The HP remotes are sending Ext2 for eject.

    Could be. I don't have MP 1.13 installed at the moment (I overwrote my test partition with MP 1.09 in order to check something else, and my "production" partition is MP 1.12!).

    Would "Eject" be a better name for this function, rather than "Ext2"? Does "Ext2" always mean "Eject", or can it vary from one remote to another? I can't help thinking that calling it "Eject" would result in fewer questions being asked by new users...
