    Hi guys,
    I recently got a new computer, but I'm having issues with the remote I had been using for MediaPortal. Namely, the software refuses to install because it won't accept my serial number (for some odd reason, you need a serial number to install this remote's software). That shouldn't be a huge loss, since Windows picks it up as a general HID device, but it appears that without the remote's software installed, I can't enter letters to search using the number pad like I used to be able to, I just get numbers. Are there plugins for MP that give remotes the ability to enter in letters using the number pad?

    MediaPortal Version:
    MediaPortal Skin: XFactor
    Windows Version: 7 64 bit
    CPU Type: Intel Core i7 980
    Memory: 12GB
    Remote: Emitta SC-503
