yuppp, got the same issue here. I have not found a solution yet. tryed ir server, which actually enables me to start mediaportal with the green button, but then no buttons at all work in mediaportal. if I uninstall ir server the behaviour is the same as yours. if you come across a solution let me know.... cheerz and happy tinkering with windows 7....

    Simply no driver support, this is happening to people including myself, where nothing is really designed to work with windows 7, same went for Vista before it was unleashed on the public.

    Got MCE-remote to work!!

    I struggled the whole evening with this, and noticed using ir server suite that the problem was not with the drivers, but with the communication between input service and the mediaportal plugin. I don't know if this is the reason why things didn't work from the start, but I noticed that Windows7 defaults to IPv6. when doing a ping to localhost , you get this:
    C:\Users\htpc>ping localhost

    Pinging htpc-PC [::1] with 32 bytes of data:

    The first line says that my machines name is htpc-PC, So i tried pinging that:
    C:\Users\htpc>ping htpc-PC

    Pinging htpc-PC [fe80::753c:936c:6af5:2590%12] with 32 bytes of data:

    So I tried changig server from localhost to htpc-PC inside the MCE-Control plugin, and suddenly everything worked.

    Setup:
    Windows 7
    MP 1 + Latest svn (15/02/09)
    IRSS Test Build 1.4.2.2627
    (Changed registrysettings as stated on "you don't need Replacement driver")

    Hope that helps you guys enjoy 7 with remote.

    For me it wasn't just the MCE remote that was causing issues with W7 32bit it was also the automatic refresh changer, built into the latest SVN build, that either stopped working or never did work (noted when I checked if it actually did change to 24hz). The screen notification would pop up to indicate a change but the refresh rate remained the same.

    Also, just to try it out, even though I configured MP to use an external player, MPC Home Cinema, it would not launch but use the internal one.

    Running under vista 32 both the remote and refresh rate changing works perfectly well. Also using an external player works fine, even though I now use the internal one.

    Good job figgering it out Lyxalig. On vista i didn't use that IRSS plugin. But now with the small change of 'localhost' --> 'computername' it makes my MCE remote come alive again! :)

    I am still here, thanks for the input, so I have now settled on mp1, I am not afraid of a lot of tweaking.

    I'm sorry if you thought my answer was condescending. I certainly didn't intend for what I said to be interpreted that way. In your prior reply you didn't just say "figure it out"; you specifically said: "figure out how to support premium channels". Hence the angle of my previous replies. Have you tried MediaPortal? If yes, I'd be...
