Is it possible to map Moving Pictures to the MCE remote "My Videos" button?

When i go to my MCE IR mapping screen, i cant seem to find an item for Moving Pictures..

Can someone help me with this?

    Hi there :)

    I think you will have to manually change it in the remote xml file.

    Using XP or Vista? On XP, you can look in this directory:
    C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal\InputDeviceMappings

    Edit Microsoft MCE.xml
    Look for this piece of code:
    <button name="My Videos" code="74">
    <action layer="0" condition="WINDOW" conproperty="6" command="ACTION" cmdproperty="18" sound="click.wav" />
    <action layer="0" condition="WINDOW" conproperty="2005" command="ACTION" cmdproperty="18" sound="click.wav" />
    <action layer="0" condition="*" conproperty="-1" command="WINDOW" cmdproperty="6" sound="click.wav" />
    </button>

    Change the 6 (marked in red above) to 96742.

    Let us know if it solved it.

    Found the file under:
    C:\ProgramData\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal\InputDeviceMappings

    That worked perfectly!
    Thanks

    If you don't use MCE, the easiest way is to rename the C:\Windows\Ehome folder to something else. This way you don't have that problem anymore when pressing the green button, or when you press the guide button.

    Search the forums - there has been a fair amount of discussion about this.

    In a nutshell, I had to:
    - Disable Windows Media Center Services
    - Stop Windows Media Center Services from Start Up
    - Disable Windows Media Center using Registry

    It wasn't until I did all 3 of these that it actually went away.

    I've also had success with this but used the My Radios button to map it as I use Moving Pics for movies but the standard My Videos for kid's shows, home movies etc but I never use My Radios so it was free. Works great except if you try to go to Moving Pictures whilst in the My Videos folder. It then actually opens My Radios instead - sort of gets confused and runs home I guess.

    Not a biggee as I just jump somewhere else first before opening Moving Pictures but anyone know how to edit this to make it work from every start point.

    thanks
