The MediaPortal2 setup guide indicates IR Remotes require IRSS. It links to this page, which indicates IRSS is compatible with MP1-1.2 and MP1-1.3. This is my first point of confusion. Where is the IRSS for MP2?

Also, I did install the IRSS under the download tab on that page (Test Build 1.5.0.62.exe). I launched the debug window for IRSS and the "Connect" button says successful. When I press keys on my remote or on the virtual remote, I see debug messages for each keypress.

However, nothing is happening in MediaPortal2. How do I wire the IRSS to MP2? Everything I can find says it just works out-of-the-box, but it is not. If someone can point me to a thread or document, that would be really helpful. I've run out of ideas on what I should search for. I thought maybe I have to train IRSS what every button on my remote means, but I would expect there to be some defaults (at least for the virtual remote).

Thank you!
Bill

    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.

    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...

    Hi, only remotes with MCE compatible drivers are supported. I don't know details about the mentioned remote, but it's out of the supported list. MP2.2 contains a Input Manager, if you could not configure your remote with it, it looks not good. We are also working on extended HID support, but this most probably will not help you.

    MP1 MP2 Feedback for MP2 DE
    Hi. This depends on the used format. If you use "Full" SBS or TAB then the quality is the same as MVC. But you're right, normally the "Half" formats are widely used. MP2 can play Full SBS and TAB without issues and external players. Even the whole GUI is in 3D then... It's only a matter of the video source. Imho the "Full" formats...

    Please attach your log files according to description in forum and wiki. It's about the adjusted refresh rate according to the content. It's a general problem with HDMI. Try switching off the refreshrate changer in MP2 settings. I'm not sure how WMC could handle it, but you would have same problem with MP1. Please see importer...
