    So my project yesterday was to get my MCE remote working and perfectly mapped with the internal IR receiver of my Antec Fusion Remote case. I have pretty much succeeded using IRSS, great!

    However there is something I would like to know if I could do in a better way. There are some buttons on my remote (e.g.Visualizations, Eject) that don't seem to exist in the abstract remote model, so I can't map them to anything directly (they do show up in the debug client, with codes like "IMON USB (2050)"). I have worked around that by mapping the needed functions to a keystroke in MediaPortal, then using Translator to send that keystroke when the button is pressed. But I'm wondering if there is a way to add those buttons so that I can map them directly in the MPRemoteInput plugin config, instead of this roundabout route? I tried to figure out by myself if I could edit some XML files to do the job, but IRSS didn't seem to like my experiments. Or should I just be happy to have a working configuration, and leave it alone?

    BTW using the iMON USB receiver plugin, MCE option, remote control and keyboard input enabled.

    Long time ago I mapped several keys for different applications and they did work all flawless. Now I wanted to add some more mappings and found out that the new ones don't work. I don't know why but the logs are telling me that the key is not mapped. The screenshot below is showing that the "Exit" key is mapped to the keystroke ESC...

    I've been using version 1.2.2.0 for years and have found no need to upgrade to newer version. I hate it that skins loose compatibility with almost every new version. And new skins are too 'fancy' for my taste. I use a customized version of the default wide skin with only Videos and TV in the main menu. I use mediaportal for recording...

    I never dealed in detail with this, because I needed just to connect my IRSS, install the driver and directly it worked out of the box with MP2. Maybe other users may confirm, what they did or you tell us which remote you have. There is also an input device manager within MP2 which you can try.

    Hi all - I upgraded an older MediaPortal 1 install to the 1.23 release. Am using a Microsoft remote (like pictured in the settings) and a Sonos soundbar. On the old MediaPortal version in the MCE remote settings I simply deleted the remote volume up/down mappings so these button presses were ignored by MediaPortal and only controlled...
