I play music a lot on it. And when I started playing a song and pressed pause, weird things would happen. This is when I was on the library screen. That's why I had to do the m first

does anyone else have problems skipping through a video when you hold left and right on the remote (or keyboard that it's emulating)? it's like xbmc is tryin gto skip ahead too much when you hold it down, and it just ends up locking up, it used to work fine on the microsoft remote on the xbox...?!

I've seen that depending on the codec used and the setting that the file was encrypted under. I think it has to do with keyframes, sometimes you can step thru a movie and sometimes it's all messed up.
And on top of that, windows seems to screw up a lot on this. You look at the same video in xbox and it seems to work OK, but in windows it just blows up.

works now perfect for mee.. the ony problem I've noticed is, that my eHome Infrared Receiver (RC6 MCE Remote) starts my System automatically from hibernation within 3 seconds.
If I uncheck the checkbox "This Device is allowed to resume the system for hibernation" (don't know the exact wording in english), everything works fine. But after that I can't boot my windows with my remote (clear why..)

This is off topic a bit but since we all run XBMC and Media Center I thought I would ask. Everytime I am recording TV in Media Center (be it VMC or Win7) and then start XMBC my recording stops. The only way it then will record again is if I close XBMC.
Does anyone else have this same problem and know of any work around?

Great guide, got nearly everything working except ff and rw won't work. They are mapped to the f and r keystrokes but when I use either in XBMC they stop the video or track.
Anyone any ideas?

Great job! Thanks a lot. Because of this post, I was able to configure the cheap $10 remote I bought off DealExtreme for XBMC.
Really helpful. Thanks again

Just wanted to post and say this worked perfectly for me. I just recently began using MPC-HC as an external player, and couldn't figure out a way to get IRSS working for it as well, so switched back to eventghost. This method was easy to use, easy to understand, and works flawlessly with no lag, and no odd issues like I was having using the xbmc plugin. Also used it to set up MPC-HC with my remote.
Just have to fiddle with my keymap.xml a bit to get some of my other functions working in xbmc and I'll be set.

Is there a better way to to go directly to the movie library than using xbmc.activatewindow(videolibrary,movietitles) atm its no good.. it dosnt take me into the library, it takes me to some random screen that looks like it could be some bad skinning, but im sure its because its not calling the window properly (using aeon showmix). Does anyone have it working properly?
