    I was looking at my tv remote and was thinking how USEFUL it would be if mediaportal, as well as having the actual compatibility for remote, if it could LEARN any kind of remote.

    the idea would be on remotes that have VCR or DVD mode buttons, make them useable for mediaportal just by buying an IR receiver.



    so, user would just have to make mediaportal learn each of the codes for each function, play, pause etc...

    this way, with any remote it would be possible to use mp just by activating VCR or DVD mode (considering no external apparatus respond to this already.

    i know IRSS does some things, but i was thinking more of an easy solution. where....
    1. select function to configure. ie: STOP button
    2. click learn
    3. press the desired button in remote.
    4. save.

    voila.

    maybe its possible, maybe....

    I agree 100 %, and I believe I gave asked Chemelli regarding this.

    As you point out, this is might be already possible by using different IRSS tool, but it is not as easy as it should/could be. I like the type of approach that the Generic Remote Plugin uses.
