If you have a gamepad and no remote controll and find it hard to set it up correctly, I recomend this It allows you to map the keys out to exactly how you want them with ease.

Here is a screenshot of mine using my xbox 360 controller

I highly recomend this, It made things so much easier. It even allows the joystick's/D-pad to be maped to the mouse so you can move the curser around.

yeah im using xbox 360 wirless controllers as well, rather a remtote but atm i have to use the controller

1 question though, does that softwre stop the problem where if u dont have the controller on before media portal starts, then it wont setect it.... i like media portal to start automatically but if i dont turn the controller on first i have to go back out of media portal and into configuration to select it again.... annoying as...
