    You would like the integration of a client that would connect to winLIRC?


    I would have thought that someone would have made a winLIRC client to emulate keystrokes (this is all that would be needed). This can be made as a plugin. Source code for an example (C++) is available here.

    I'll put this on my list of things to do. I was going to write up some documentation on getting remotes to work with Girder but I think this solution makes much more sence as girder isn't free and winLIRC is.

    Thank you.

    P.S. Now I use WinLirc -> Girder -> Media Portal, but WinLirc -> Media Portal is more easy.

    Agreed, and it would be free. The $19.99 Girder wouldn't be an option for a lot of people.

    Frodo,
    I am, that is the setup window as called from in the Media Portal Configuration window.


    Am I correct in that I can call

    Code (Text):
    1.         /// <summary>
    2.         /// OnAction() method. This method gets called when there's a new action like a
    3.         /// keypress or mousemove or... By overriding this method, the window can respond
    4.         /// to any action
    5.         /// </summary>
    6.         /// <param name="action">action : contains the action</param>
    7.         public virtual void OnAction(Action action)
    to send the actions I want to map remote keys to? I can parse the keymap.xml file to find out what the current actions are, and then let the user map to each one?
