hardware is in my case an Ipaq 5550. I will be programming a few buttons of my tv-remote with extra functions. Using Usbuirt and Girder

How is the range on that?

I use a "one for all" "Kameleon 6" with the code for the Topfield receiver (1206) since this gives me all the buttons I need. For reception I use a TSOP IR receiver I built into the HTPC that is queried by Winlirc. I use the winlirc plugin that "Jadz" kindly provided for sending commands to MP.

Range is about 10m and I can point to the ceiling etc. and the reflection is still sufficient to control teh HTPC. The kameleon has two strong IR Diodes built in.


In order to switch on the PC with this remote I made a small circuit that can receive an RECS80 code I programmed into the Kameleons "Power" button. the circuit effectively "pushes" the power button on the PC so it works regardless of the hardware.

This circuit also provides a toggle switching voltgage for my CRT projector to select 16:9/4:3. This is another RECS80 code programmed into the Kameleons "16:9" button.

If anybody out there has "soldering skills" I would be happy to provide the details of my circuit.


Cheers

I think I've solved the remote button issue, there was an unknown driver in Device Manager which I discovered was the Serial IO GPIO driver. Installing that appears to have solved the remote problem. Who knew? Thanks to all who contributed to my solution.

As the TVEngine is same, is it not possible to take over some MP1 code pieces here or is it fully player dependent? So far not, this could be achieved. But at first the infos need to be existing.

You could try using the UNC paths for the timeshift and record folders. On the client machine go to MediaPortal configuration - TV/Radio - Advanced Options tick the UNC paths tick box and put the network paths for timeshift and record folders in the appropriate lines and click OK.
