    Since i switched to MP2 i had serveral issues getting my Harmony Remote (configured as MCE Remote) working nice with my build iMon Reciver and Mediaportal 2 using IRSS. But i got it solved! Due to, there's no real tutorial i just want to give some hints how i done it. So what do you need:
    - iMon Manager installed
    - IRSuite installed
    - a remote (here my Harmony)
    What to do:
    1. Set in iMon Manager to MCE Remote
    2. Set your iMon Manager to Plugin-Mode
    3. in IRServerConfigurater set your IMon Device to MCE, i didn't change any other settings there
    4. make sure IRServer using abstract remote
    If you did, you should be able to use your remote to navigate etc. But you will mention, that in IRSS the left and up button is inverted. Also you always get duble-clicks when pushing an arrow button on your Remote. To figure out this, it took me about 2hr of try and error. The problem is known but i didn't find how to fix and still keep a working remote. So what i did:
    5. open \Program Files (x86)\TeamMediaPortal\MP2-Client\Plugins\IrInput\DefaultRemoteMap.xml
    That is the remote map that in default settings is used (the name says ;) ) and because i was to dumb to find out how i can load my "learned" map (using abstractor) i just changed the mapping in the default one. First i unmapped the arrow keys in IRSS by mapping them to S:none. it should look like this:
    XML:
      <MappedKeyCode Code="Up" Key_Name="S:none" />
      <MappedKeyCode Code="Down" Key_Name="S:none" />
      <MappedKeyCode Code="Left" Key_Name="S:none" />
      <MappedKeyCode Code="Right" Key_Name="S:none" />
    I also unmapped the colour-keys to avoid conflicts with translator settings i will use for some additional shortcuts, not sure if i needet to. After restarting IRServer you should mention that your remote won't bring the double clicks in MP anymore, you now have a good starting point for accessing other features with the translator shipped with IRSS. I use it to map some keys (colour + display keys of my harmony) for fetures like jumping to fullscreen, online videos etc.
    That's it, i hope there's someone who think that is usefull information. Maybe somebody can tell me how to load learned maps ;) Have Fun!

    I have a similar Configuration and made a Test-Install of MP2: Basically it's working, but one major thing I'm missing/don't understand is if IRSS is supported.

    Especially MP Control Plugin wich I used in MP1 to configure a lot of functions, individual Mappings, Macros...

    Therefore one elemtary Question: Is "MP Control Plugin" comparable to MP1 supported?
    And to get it in MP2 I do have to reinstall IRSS?

    Thanks!

    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.

    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 didn’t know this, however as they hadn’t announced anything new for a while I should have guessed. Sad though. I’ve had a harmony remote for about 15years. Now I’m using the elite with hub and it’s amazing. hopefully they stick to their word and keep up support.

    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...

    The next version MP 2.2.1 will come with a new Input Manager that consumes HID events. This means that if your remote doesn't immediately run out of the box, you will nevertheless be able to map every key on your input device, be it remote, keyboard or gamepad, to any MP2 function.
