    It would be nice if there was a list of mappings of what each MCE-remote button is *supposed* to do, so I can check. (for instance, the "power" button doesn't bring up the schutdown menu of MP2.)
    The following page probably contains more information about the Microsoft MCE Remote Control than you ever wanted to know:

    Using a Microsoft remote control in Windows - Official Kodi Wiki

    As regards the remote control's POWER button, my understanding is that this button is treated by Windows as the SLEEP button, and as such cannot be remapped by applications. I have not used EventGhost, but AutoHotKey never sees this button being pressed. I think that the only place to define the action of the remote control's POWER button is in the power plan, under "Advanced Settings/Action of SLEEP Button", and the only choices are "Sleep/Hibernate/No-action".

    Thx, great resource! (and all the best the power button didn't do anything when I pressed it...:whistle:)

    It is certainly usefull and I'll dig into it later, but actually I was referring to what MP2 is supposed to do with the button presses, so I was looking for a list of keyboard shortcuts to see which ones "match" between MCE and MP2 to narrow down what I could expect.
    But I think The_Soluter was working on it in another thread, so I'll search later and probably find the appropriate links there and post them here for completeness.

    and BTW I upgraded to the latest release, but nothing new in the MCE department so far.

    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've been using version 1.2.2.0 for years and have found no need to upgrade to newer version. I hate it that skins loose compatibility with almost every new version. And new skins are too 'fancy' for my taste. I use a customized version of the default wide skin with only Videos and TV in the main menu. I use mediaportal for recording...

    Thanks, but I already tried that. The first 12 "IrDeviceV2" entries produced no messages at all. The last 2 (labelled "Mouse") produced messages at a rate which caused the HID Demo UI to become unresponsive. The only possible source for these messages was the RF remote I was using to operate the HID Demo UI. Why should an RF...
