    Aaron, I have installed your latest release (May 25th) and am still having a problem with it competing with other MediaCentre services. I am having to manually stop the Media Center Extender Service (mcrdsvc.exe) before IR Server will start correctly. Previously it seemed to be the Scheduler service that had to be killed, but that one now seems to be stopped by you.

    Regards,
    Mark

    You shouldn't need to install MCE Replacement Driver. Not at all.

    OK, I'll add that to the list to stop. Thanks.

    Hi Aaron,

    Sorry for the delay in feedback... There are still issues in learning with the Translator... This is on 2 different PCs. Note: It is a little better then the last version as it is more responsive but still has the "Failed to learn" message quite often.

    You mentioned about not using the MCE Replacement Driver? That is part of the IR Server Suite install, isn't it?
    Perhaps I should explain what I do and you can tell me what it is that I am doing wrong...
    Uninstall the IR Server Suite.
    Install the new IR Server Suite, ticking the boxes when prompted for everything except TV3 support.
    Shutdown the IR server opened by Setup.
    Then open the MCE Replacement Driver folder. Run the uninstall.bat and then run the Install.bat files.
    Then I configure the Server, Translator & Tray Launcher.

    Should I just uninstall & delete MCE Replacement driver and it's folder?

    Thanks for your excellent effort with this magical tool :)

    Cya,

    Nuck Name.

    I was just saying that you don't need the MCE Replacement Driver.

    I have included the MCE Replacement Driver with the package for convenience. But you don't have to install it. Of course, if you want the benefits that it brings then you should, but you don't have to.

    If you do choose to use the Replacement Driver then you only need to install it once, not every time you upgrade the IR Server Suite.

    Hope that clears it up.

    Blast IR / Macro

    Hi Aaron, first of all thank you very much for this magnificent software.

    I Can't make macros work in Media Portal Control Plugin, when I try to map buttons the macros and ir blasting doesn't do anything.
    When I test Both IR and Macro they work in the setup but when I press the mapped button in MediaPortal nothing happens. The same button mapped with an Action or Window action works.
    I use MCE Replacement driver.

    thanks dareh,

    I've been a bit snowed under for the last few weeks, I'm just getting back into MP stuff now, so hopefully I'll get this fixed in the next few days.

    Cheers,

    Hi Aaron, the macro and ir mappings are working with the last beta from yesterday.
    Mceir is working flawlessly for me now.

    I have also an usbuirt unit so I'm going to test with it from now.

    Thank you very much.
    Dareh.
