    Questions about how to use IR Server Suite with Vista Media Center (VMC).

    I thought I had this working but something happened so I want to make sure I'm doing this right. :confused:

    • Does the Microsoft eh remote driver need to be disabled for IR Server Suite to work? If so...
      • Are all default MCE/VCE remote commands then disabled and must be relearned? If so...
        • Is there an MCE/VCE file that can be imported into translator that will restore default functionality for VCE?
    • If Eh is not disabled will I get double commands sent - IRSS translator and EH default?
      • Is there a way to disable just certain EH commands so they can be redefined with translator?

    I've been reading through so many threads my head is spinning. If anyone has ready answers please post.

    :DThanks for any help on this.
    - Andy

    OK - all is working again now. Here's the steps that worked for me.

    1. Do not disable EH services in IRSS configuration program (If this is already disabled, re-enable it and reboot so the EH services restart)

    2. Disable default button presses in IRSS configuration program (otherwise you can't change any defaults - changes do not override defaults so you have to...)

    3. Relearn every remote button on the remote using the chart from the old MCE replacement driver faq. (I've exported the xml - see below).

    This is working on Vista Media Center with a Media Center Remote Clone and a Hauppauge IR receiver/blaster.

    mce button mapping xml file attachment

    Attached is my current xml file for the MCE remote button mappings. All the button mapping is in the System Wide section but you can move it around in Translator. If you find errors or missing stuff please correct it and post it back.

    I used the HIP mce remote faq for the keyboard shortcuts. It's located here: MCE Remote Replacement Driver FAQ

    Here's the contents of the keymapping.

    Regular MCE Buttons:

    <ButtonMapping KeyCode="31730" Description="Big Green Button" Command="Keys: @%{ENTER}" />
