Although I have search and implemented several "potential" solutions my original MCE Remote does not function anymore with MP 1.1 (only up/down Left/Right)
MediaPortal Version: 1.1 Beta
MediaPortal Skin: Blue wide
Windows Version: Win7 Home Ultimate
Remote: MCE model 1039

I suppose more people expect win7 & MP 1.1 to work flawless as it did in Vista and XP.
Until 1.1 is released I'll reinstall Vista and wait patiently for a solution

just to double check, because i know i have missed it in the past, but did you select to use an MCE remote in the MP configuration. not saying you didn't, just double checking.

i have an mce remote and it works just fine with windows 7 home premium x64

    One of the SVNs (not sure which) appears to have broken it - I was using an MCE remote fine with MP on Win7 (on two different HTPCs) and after an upgrade the remotes just stopped working despite being selected in MP conf, etc.

    I'd previously been using EventGhost for controlling MP via MCE remote and just dropped back to using that.

    Yes I checked the MC remote in the MP configuration.
    Perhaps I should specify that I have the XP complient version of the MCE Remote

    There are multiple way's to get the remote working via third party softwareand I have tried some of them - however I think that one of the charms of MP is one can use an MCE remote out of the box - now we get the majur upgrade from Vista MP 1.02 to Win7 MP 1.1 I just want to warn that this isn't working anymore out of the box.

    Now I getting doubtfull - I just installed MP 1.1 on my "work" computer and I can use MCE Remote flawlessly - must be something in my specific setup.:oops:
    I withdraw this "bug" untill further notice

    I just installed 1.1.0 on Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit and found that my MCE remote only has about half the buttons work (namely 'back', 'stop' are not working in any sections). Updating it to latest SVN has the remote atg the same impaired way, I'll keep trying a few things in the coming week(s) but just wanted to air that more than 1 person has experienced the 'impaired' MCE remote (up, down, left, right, 'ok' work at least)

    Just did a complete win7 Enterprise x32 fresh install and have the same thing more or less. It's an IRtrans MCE compatibale remote which comes within the Origean x15e case.
    It worked perfectly with Vista icw Mediaportal v1.0
    In the win7 configuration the IR testtool receives all codes correclty from the remote. The remote works also perfectly within windows media center on the same system. In Mediaportal v1.1 it looks completely dead.
    in the mediaportaL config I tried the IRtrans receiver both checked and unchecked but not a single response from my remote in MP

    [sorry, this is about the 1.1 Beta release so I will create a new subject in RC1 for this problem]
