A very nice feature of this keyboard is that you can program your TV or amplifier's volume buttons while retaining the ability to use the default behaviour by holding Shift when you hit the volume keys.

Smirnoff, do you know if the additional buttons are going to be supported in MP 2.0? Onmine, most of the buttons at the top don't do anything; My Pictures, My Music, etc.

The majoriy of the shortcut buttons should work out of the box, however I did have to add support for My Radio and My TV (Live TV works okay) and possibly one other button that I can't remember right now.

The changes should be present in the recent CVS builds for the past two weeks or so and will also be in 0.2 when it is released.

If the problem persists create a support thread and we'll see whats going wrong for you.

Cheers,
Smirnuff.

Thanks for the info. You're right, out of the box, *most* buttons work. I've been avoiding CVS builds (WAF) so I'll wait for 0.2 final.

No luck. It crashed at the splash screen. Had the foresight to back up the original so everything's working again. That's OK, I can wait for 0.2.0

Then you didn’t use Nereus Skin in MP2. tMM does a great job in combination with MP2 it’s the best, if you ask me.

I've made a workaround using Autohotkey. If you don't want to install that should this problem arise for you, you can use my compiled .exe and add it to the autostart folder of Windows 8.1 and above. The functionality then is, when you press the Volume Up button on your MCE remote, this will send ALT+TAB to your HTPC, bringing...

Hi all - I upgraded an older MediaPortal 1 install to the 1.23 release. Am using a Microsoft remote (like pictured in the settings) and a Sonos soundbar. On the old MediaPortal version in the MCE remote settings I simply deleted the remote volume up/down mappings so these button presses were ignored by MediaPortal and only controlled...
