I would like to map a special key-combination to my remote (x10).
To be specific: the combination of "shift" plus "1".
How can I do that?
I found the option "key pressed". But what do I enter in the fields below?

AW: Map Keyboard-combination to remote-key

Since nobody seems to know how to uses this "key pressed" function,
I'll ask differently: Is there a remote shortcut-condition that corresponds to the keyboard-combination "shift+1"?

    I was looking to do the same thing (with a different key), and from searching the forums it seems we're not alone. However the Key Pressed action within the Microsoft MCE configuration is a complete mystery. I have not found any helpful documentation or posts.

    By pressing random keys I found the two fields in the Key Pressed action will accept numbers, and there must a secret lookup table to translate the numbers to key presses from the keyboard.:confused: Not sure why this is so different from the General > Keys and Sounds editor where you simply type the key you want.
