I`m completely newcomer - i have found this program XBmc five days ago.
It`s really awesome
I have Harmony ONE
Unfortunately i have bought an RC-201 remote + ir receiver and of course
At least i managed to work all in that settings:
In XP run HIP http://www.byremote.com.au/HIP/Default.htm to receive ir command and translate them to keyboard command http://wiki.xbmc.org/?title=Global_Keyboard
after little problems i have thought Harmony commands from the RC-201
of course this thread i have found after

Eventghost+Xbox-Remote+2 Win Systems+2 behaviours why? - sascho - 2010-01-11 22:30
I have just one problem with the Xbox Remote on my Windows Vista System, that while holding the button down/up for scrolling in a list, that the scrolling stocks after 3 steps and start again.
And that some button press are interpreted as a double press.
I thought long time this is maybe due to the Windows driver V028 of the remote, eventghost or something, but i tried the exact same configuration on an other system and its working really fine like original on a xbox with fast scrolling.
This system is Win7 and than i tried it on an other Win7 system but there it is again like on the Vista System.
It seems that it is not a problem of xbmc but maybe its a problem of the way the data is given to xbmc by eventghost?
I couldn´t find a rule for it and tried many things with eventghost and comparing this 2 systems, but no luck so far. Maybe some USB Port problem?
Maybe someone has a idea where the problem is coming from?
Thats the last step missing at my system, a good working xbox remote, so help would be fine, thanks

Hi. Sorry if this has been answered before(I've seen it asked but never clearly answered)...
My standard tv remote has different modes for different devices. I want to use one for xbmc (which is running on my windows desktop). Can someone please provide a link to the cheapest kind of ir remote I can buy to do this please, just to give an example, assuming it's actually possible. I know I'd need to use Event ghost etc, but I've looked on eBay and google and on here and just can't find a cheap ir receiver that will def work. There are lots of cheap ones on eBay that say they are for data transfer between computers but I'm not sure if I could use them, so I'd love a link to a cheap example.
As an aside, I actually already have the xbox360 ir receiver from Scene It but I have found no info about any drivers to make that work. I prob also have the old xbox ir receiver but my soldering isn't up to much and I can't find a cable to convert it to USB (all cables seem to be other way round to make USB devices work on an old xbox) so I really just want a cheap USB ir receiver that will def work, and I'd rather not pay more for one that comes with a remote that I don't want.
Thanks guys. Hope that makes sense.

Help for Emprex 3009URF III remote in Win7 x64 - ohbuggerit2k2 - 2010-03-27 16:03
New to the forum so plz be gentle with me.
I have XMBC V9.11 installed on a Win7 x64 setup. XMBC itself works great and it is the best Media Centre I have used.
I bought a Emprex 3009URF III Remote because I wanted RF as my PC is in the hall. I can get most things to work out of the box except the "settings". I can get into settings and do whatever I need but I cannot exit the settings. Does not matter what button I press it will not exit.
Anyone any ideas or is there a reg hack that I can use with this remote
Thanks in advance.

have you tried the "Back" button? usually works for me in PMIII skin, i would assume is similar for other skins.
if its not available for you, then maybe you will need to map it with your driver/software(external to XBMC). i do it with eventghost myself

Maybe wait until I've made it a bit prettier and more complete.
