I am in the process of rounding up all the parts I need to build an HTPC. I plan on using MP as the interface and have a couple questions.

I currently have the Logitech® Harmony 659 Advanced Universal Remote to control all my electronics. I also have a standard Win XP Pro computer. I want to know what I need to allow me to use the Windows Remote Keyboard(or other IR keyboard, suggestions please) and my Logitech 659 remote to control MP.

I know I need some type of IR receiver, but which one will work best for my needs.

Also, what is the best PVR software to use with MP?

Thanks a ton.[/code]

Wel,l I have used the IR receiver from www.ir-shop.de. This site doesn't exist any more, but any IR (not IRDA) reciever that works with girder would do. Logitech Harmony remote control works with girder (and MP) wery well, although you need to invest some time to install them.

More simple solution would be MCE remote control (you can use only receiver, without remote), or any other IR reciver that is supported natively form MP.

Thanks. Your screenshot is showing the "TVGuide", the mentioned "MiniEPG" appears, if you press "enter" or "OK" during Live-TV. But you're right, the channel arrow and PIP button are not reachable by mouse, something insibile is overlapping them and preventing focus. I'll fix that. Anyway, I'll provide a new installer to you soon...

I didn’t know this, however as they hadn’t announced anything new for a while I should have guessed. Sad though. I’ve had a harmony remote for about 15years. Now I’m using the elite with hub and it’s amazing. hopefully they stick to their word and keep up support.

upon a second look at MP Config, there is no latency setting... only "Repeat delay" and "Repeat speed" settings, not even in Windows is there a setting for latency for HID devices. If the remote doesn't have those settings in the MyHarmony setup, then there is no recourse. :(
