    Hi all, apologies if this post is in the wrong section, please move it to the correct place if so as I would really like to get this sorted out.

    I have recently installed Windows 7 x64 RC and Media Portal 1.1.0 Beta. I have managed to tweak many of the settings and seem to have most things working, but have had trouble getting my media center remote to work properly.

    I am using the keyboard input plugin which I previously used in Windows XP with Media Portal 1.0.2. I have configured all the mappings as I had them previously, but I just cant get it to work properly. The playback buttons do not work (stop button changes the screen AR, play/pause etc just dont work at all, rewind acts as the back button) even though they had been mapped. I also tried a fix to replace the remoteplugin.dll file in the media portal directory which I saw on another post within the forums. It seems to be a reasonably common problem after looking around at many posts but I have yet to find a solution a nd am hoping someone here may be able to offer one or recommend an alternative plugin to keyboardinputplugin that has worked for them.

    The remote I am using has a usb based receiver and is a no-name media center remote that came bundled with a copy of power cinema last year but worked perfectly with the keyboardinputplugin previously.

    You might want to check out the latest version of the KeyboardInputPlugin that I recently released. See the official forum thread for details. Among others, this version has been compiled against MediaPortal 1.1.0 final, and has improved keyboard handling.

    If you still have problems, please let me know on that thread or via PM.
