So my mediaportal 1 server has finally died, needing a new motherboard so i am setting up a clean install with mediaportal 2.1.3. I am having problems with the remotes i used without issue in mediaportal 1. They are VRC1100, and i have 3 of these in my home, on 3 different systems. So i setup the IR server software and using translator i can get the back key mapped to effectively press escape. Most other keys work, but im stuck on stop, pause and a few others. Can anyone help me here? What do i need to do to get that working.

Plan B would be to replace my remotes with a known simple plug and play setup on all 3 pc's Can anyone link me some place i could buy new such a remote. Im in the UK. CHEERS!!

Thanks des.

Go to: Commands > User Input > Keystroke Command. In the Text Box, do mousse-right-click. In the contextual menu, you have "Special Keys" where you can select the keys you want to map. The Stop/Pause keys are in "Media Keys" sub-menu.
