    One thing that's always seemed odd to me is that the mouse's 'back' button doesn't work in MP.

    I drive MP using the mouse when at the computer but it's irritating that I can't go back one level using the back button on my mouse. Would it be possible to add this functionality please?

    (Using MS Explorer Mouse, which can be a bit flaky at times so maybe it works with others?)

    You should enable the General HID input in the remotes section of the config tool. That allows MePo to listen for such general interface messages like "Back", "Play" (on multimedia keyboards), etc.
