    I was about to start a new installation of Media Portal and rather than using the USB-UIRT with an IR flasher (like I did in the past) I was hoping to control MP directly from my remote processor (a URC MSC-400) via RS-232 codes. Is this easy and possible?

    My HTPC does have a serial input, so connection seems to be easy. I did notice there is a section in the expert configuration called SerialUIR which may be what I'm looking for, but I'm not sure what to set to what?!

    Any help would be appreciated.



    Thanks,
    Brian

    No one has any experience with this? Should I post to another area?

    Thanks!

    I appreciate the attempt, but that link/application is designed to "...have full control of any RS-232 capable device from my HTPC."

    I'm looking for the reverse--to have control of MediaPortal from an external device.

    Brian B, I don't think this is possible :sorry:

    (Please feel free to correct me if I'm wrong!)
