    You will need to give us a little bit more Information about your setup. What kind of remote are you using, which MP version are we looking at, etc.?. Generally speaking we would appreciate if you filled out the system specification part in your profile and switched it to visible). Also logs (in debug mode) are the ultimate means of providing full scope info to the community for help.

    hey sorry,

    im using version 1.12 the remote ive been using for years just randomly stopped working when the tv cards un mapped themselves.

    ive tried using different remotes as well as another e home sensor no joy.

    if i click an icon on the desktop i can use the arrow buttons to move across the desktop however i have no function at all in media portal other than the special keys such as recorded tv, green button etc..

    its driving me mad!

    hey, sorry wasn't at the pc when i replied.

    ive updated my system, please see attached logs for the remote control problem.


    dont worry about the tv card problem as i fixed that issue.[DOUBLEPOST=1440348882][/DOUBLEPOST]unsure if its related but the keyboard arrows dont control media portal either again they work in windows though
