No need for all this complication
1- Power Button and sleep function
....A- Use registry settings to do it "works perfect" see page32 post317 for instructions, I covered it zillion times
....B- Yes you can do it from the Built in Functions
....C- You can do it from within XBMC Settings_> System_> Power Saving_. and from the Shutdown Function you can select "Suspend/Hibernate etc.."
2- Zoom button Open shutdown Menu:
A- Open MCERemoteMapper
B- Look down the list for the Zoom button
C- From the drop down menu select "S", it should be set as "Tab" currently
D- Apply to save, Exit and Restart.
3- PowerDVD 10 Ultra does not accept any keypresses from the RC6 remote
A- My setup is XBMC dedicated so it will definatly not work with anything else except WMC "some buttons will not work though"
B- I have created a specific WMC, PowerDVD and XBMC compatible configuration here. Its Still in "Expermental" status.
C- I supply them out of courtesy, you are welcome to try the files.
D- This is the Registry Configuration file Muti.app.Config.v0.1.reg
E- This Script Autohotkey script Blind_V_M_B-Script.ahk will make your volume buttons Work in XBMC.
Oh my! you've got so many questions in one post I hope this helps.

Is there anything you might need from me to change in the reg file so that those buttons work in PowerDVD10. Cheers!

I'm surprised that the setup does not work with PDVD10, as it did with the previous versions!
What I would need from you is to list all the keyboard shortcuts for all the buttons you mentioned that actually work in PDVD10.
Post them here, but I do not promise you a quick fix because I am not working on this at the moment, its still experimental and PDVD10 is not my priority, XBMC 10 is.
Tversity media server with XBMC? - poyntek - 2011-02-10 05:02
Has anyone used Tversity media server with XBMC? If so how did it work for you? I just gave some attention to Tversity on by blog as well as XBMC

This site has all the accurate keyboard shortcuts for PowerDVD10.
Take your time, at the moment I can play & stop the movie in PowerDVD10 with the remote.
unticking BDJ keyboard support checkbox in configuration. Restart powerdvd. Works.

Please follow this thread, although nothing is new in it but I will be posting an update "when finished" there as it is the specific thread for PDVD, WMC setup. :-)

Just a quick thanks for this!!! My remote control stopped working, and I thought it had given up the ghost after trouble-shooting it for a while.
Finally, I gave in and applied your registry fix 1.4, and the keymap 1.8 - rebooted - and bam! The remote was working again!
so - thank you very much!
Now, I'm going to fully document my symptoms so that they'll be picked up by Google for the next person this happens to:
HP Media Center Infrared (IR) hub with MCE compatible remote control stopped working. HP Media Center remote simply flashes red on the receiver, but with nothing happening on the screen.
Windows 7, x64, XBMC Dharma
HP Media Center IR, OVU400102/71 HP P/N 5187-4593
SOLUTION: Apply registry from here: http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=78179, download Keymap.xml, and reboot!!!!!!!!

I've googled this and wasn't able to find an answer.
Is there anyway to mimic the way that the keyboard's arrow keys work? As when they're pressed for longer periods of time, it scrolls faster and faster?
Cheers either way!

When I press the "Left, right, up and down" navigation buttons they act exactly like my keyboard directional buttons i.e. Starting slow then speeding up, this should be happening by default in windows unless windows own keyboard settings was changed. The speed and the rate of repeat can be controlled from within Windows Keyboard settings, but I guess you might have other problem here!
How does your remote navigation buttons act in XBMC? Do they scroll one step and stop then you have to press again for another step and so on? Or is it just a continuous slow scrolling with out stuttering or going faster like it should normally do?
