I've bought a MCE remote from ebay and would like to build/buy an IR reciver that will work with it in media portal.

I have an IR man already but i assume that this wont work?

thanks

    A genuine MCE remote comes with a USB IR receiver and 2 IR blasters - you should not have to build/buy an IR receiver....

    I bought it from ebay with no IR reciver or IR blasters.

    I dont need the IR Blasters so i was wondering if i could either build one or use my irman reciver.

    thanks

    I doubt it - one of the neat features of the MCE remote is that it will both put your PC to standby and wake it from standby. To do this you would require the MCE IR receiver as it is "always on" (powered by the USB port) and has the smarts built-in to wake the PC.

    If you are happy to do without that feature, you could probably use a simple IR receiver and HIP to control MediaPortal....

    I think I've solved the remote button issue, there was an unknown driver in Device Manager which I discovered was the Serial IO GPIO driver. Installing that appears to have solved the remote problem. Who knew? Thanks to all who contributed to my solution.

    Standard Windows behaviour is that if you open a file in File Explorer that has an application associated with it the file will be displayed in that application. This does not happen with MP2. If I try to open a .ts file (or any other video file type associated with Media Portal) rather than displaying the recording it merely opens...
