I am sure this has all been covered, I read many posts, but still no luck. I have the MCE remote, the green button does nothing. I have mptray installed and running, many reboots later still nothing. Currently I have my HTPC setup to launch MP on login, and send it to the tray. I do most admin via DameWare, so sometimes when I come back to the TV my MP is still minimized. How can I get the green button or any button to maximize/minimize.

Finally, might as well figure out how to map a button to start MP if it is not started.

    Hi

    When you unzipped the files (4) into the C:\Program Files\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal folder, did you run the install.bat file and then mptray.exe.

    Check that mptray.exe is running in task manager and let us know.

    Hi there :)

    I answered similar question a few days ago in this thread.

    Please see there if it will be of assistance.

    Then you mentioned mptray. There is also a mptrayMOD that might work better.

    edit: oops - beaten :)

    mptray is definatley running in the task manager. WINXP PRO if that helps

    "I am using IR Server Suite. A program called Translater is also installed. In Translater, I configured Green Button to launch MP."

    I will look into IRSS when I get home, though I think I at least tried it once. Is Translater a plugin for MP?

    Translator is a separate windows program. Not a MP plugin. You can configure various things for normal windows with it. Most common: launch MP.

    Make sure in your system tray that it is running.

    My MCE remote came with my Happauge 2250. I installed the small IR software that came with it. Do I still need that, or should I uninstall that, and use IRSS

    USB with a 2" x 2" receiver. There are two smaller IR receivers about the size of a pencil erase that are not being used
