how to disconnect the PS3 remote in Windows 7 x64 - bandgap112 - 2010-07-07 19:01
How do I disconnect the PS3 remote in Windows 7 x64 (Ultimate)?
After pairing the remote it just shows up as an BD remote control icon in "devices and printers" but does not have the text "connected" or "disconnect" when I press and hold the Playstation button, as shown in WinXP.
The remote works fine with XBMC.

Did anyone find the missing keyboard binds that are not listed in the wiki? I'm still trying to figure out what they are, but with no success so far.
PS3 remote problems - Lachlan - 2010-10-20 11:45
I'm having a hard time getting my PC to react to the PS3 remote.
I have a Dell Studio 1555 with a Dell Wireless 370 Bluetooth Mini-card running Windows 7 x64.
Listed under Bluetooth Radio in device manages lists the above and also Microsoft Bluetooth Enumerator.
Mini-card : Version 126.96.36.1990 dated 8/04/2010
Enumerator: Version 6.1.7600.16385 21/06/2006
The bluetooth card is successfully paired to my Dell BT Travel mouse so I figure it is working ok.
I can add the PS3 remote (fresh batteries) via Decives and Printers and it installs as a BD Remote Control. I have paired it without a code
Under Human-Interface-Devices in the device manager it is listed as Bluetooth Remote Control.
When I check it under Devices and Printers the icon is greyed out. Under settings all of the device information is unavailable. Under 'Services' it is blank.
Can anyone shed some light on why the remote icon is greyed out? Pressing any buttons on the remote does not change the icon. It seems this is all that is keeping me from using EventGhost and XBMC.

This is due to the device not pairing correctly. You need to ensure that the remote remains in pairing mode throughout the time that the remote tries to pair with Windows.
This is the experimental version: http://benbarron.com/applications
Have a go and let me know how it runs?

I have had issues with pairing the device.
After pressing the PS3 + Start button it would show in the "Add a device" panel but I had to continue to press buttons on the remote whilst it was pairing.
If I did not press any buttons I would get an error code. I can't remember the exact code and unfortunately I'm at work now.
The code is 0x80070015
This morning I tried running the non-experimental version of the PS3 remote. It installed correctly but the option to pair the remote was greyed out. The experimental version did not seem to have this option.

You need to press the ENTER + START buttons together to get it in pairing mode...NOT the buttons you were pressing.
There is currently no pairing tool included in either release - I am aware of this.
Also - try fresh batteries in the remote......this is a fix to the same common issue!
EDIT: New experimental version up now to fix UAC issues and saving the configuration file.

Working on it at the moment.
I know exactly what supercan's application is doing and have replicated the functionality (haven't published it yet), the problem is that it won't work in Vista or Windows 7 and won't work for x64 either.
