"2. Create a folder called MultiShortcut in your local language folder located at C:\ProgramData\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal\language."

I don't have a folder C:\ProgramData - what should I do? Just create one?

Thanks, I've found it and now have it installed.

But........ how do you use a remote to navigate around Netflix webpage? All I can seem to do is scroll the page up and down.

Thanks now it work like I want it to work.
I use a iPad and Air Keyboard to control the webpage :)
I also have to change a little because I have Mustayaluca as default.

For those with windows media center you can launch the netflix portion of wmc through multishortcut launching a shortcut to:

C:\Windows\ehome\ehshell.exe /url:windowsmediacenterapp:{e6f46126-f8a9-4a97-9159-b70b07890112}\{982ea9d3-915c-4713-a3c8-99a4688b7c59}?EntryPointParameters=

Works perfectly with my hauppauge remote, other than weird error message right at start-up and the fact that if you keep going back you end up in wmc proper.

If you have windows 8 you can also launch the netflix app using the metrolauncher2 http://www.itsjustwhatever.com/downloads/ but you will need mouse input to navigate.

Hi, I wrote the metrolauncher app which is how I found this thread. While I canceled my Netflix account and don't have a huge personal interest in this anymore, I could probably write a wrapper fairly easily that is designed specifically for the launching of the MCE version of Netflix. I haven't tried the method mentioned above to know its exact limitations, but i would make it to close the weird error message and close MCE when Netflix closes (instead of going to the MCE screen).

If anyone is interested let me know or I wont bother.

    Btw, IIRC Kylo has MCE-remote features built in. (Sometimes gives issues, tho').
