    Trying to use the new controller support in 1.12. with a wired xbox360 controller.



    Works except using the dpad always skips menu items by two and when pressing the A button it seems to register a single button press twice. For example in the TV section selecting TV on, turns it on and then straight off again, like it is registering the button press twice.

    I have tried raising the repeat delay and repeat speed options in the HID settings (entering a high number like 2000), but this seems to have no effect.

    I think I am missing something simple.
    Any help would be appreciated.

    Cheers

    Jamiro, thank you for trying to provide the log files. However what we really need (as always) are full log files, config etc. from the Watchdog tool.
    So, please could you:
    1. Open MP Configuration.
    2. Navigate to the "remotes and input devices" section, "HID" tab: http://wiki.team-mediaportal.com/1_...ion/MediaPortal_Configuration/8_Remote/01_HID
    3. Enable extended logging.
    4. Use the Watchdog tool with option 2 to start MP.
    5. Do whatever you have to do (press buttons etc.) to show the problem.
    6. Close MP.
    7. Attach ("upload a file") the zip file created by the Watchdog tool.

    oops sorry, forgot about the watchdog tool.
    Will do this soon and try and repost.
    Thanks for your help so far.

    Thank you for the log files. (y)

    It does look like MediaPortal is registering most button presses twice.
    You said that you've tried to increase the repeat delay (which is exactly what I'd suggest), but currently your configuration is:
    Please can you try to set the repeat delay again (I think 500 ms should be okay). If that doesn't help, please post log files again.

    Also, tag to @Stéphane Lenclud : is it possible that the HID handler is detecting key-down and key-up as 2 separate key presses?

    I'm not sure why it would do that. It's not a repeat issue AFAICT.
    Try with all plug-in disabled.
    Are you using other third party software that would mess around with your gamepad commands?

    Thanks for your help, yes I have tried increasing it. I tried 500 and even went higher than, but it still behaved in the same way. I will try again though, just in case I was doing something weird the first time I tried it and disable all the plugins.
    I cannot think of any software that would mess with the gamepad. I don't have much else installed on this machine except MP, AnyDVD, VirtualCloneDrive, they are really the only things I have running besides MP.

    Thanks for your suggestions.

    Did you install extra MP plug-ins?

    Thanks for the reminder but that does not answer my question. It helps though.
