Just updated the site regarding keyboard.xml. Some people having issues becuase they are just forgetting to replace the keyboard.xml in the system folder. To avoid this, from now on the location to put the custom Keyboard.xml will be in the userdata Keymaps folder :-)
So when updating to new XBMC release you will not have to replace the Original keyboard.xml in the "System" folder.
Also for anyone who does not know! Keyboard.xml in [Appdata "Keymaps"] folder will override the Original XBMC keyboard.xml in the [System "Keymaps"] folder.

first let me say i love your reg fix. All works very nice for me.
Could you help me with one problem. When i enter my movie library i have the jumpsms function for my movies, all work fine when i press the 6 xbmc moves to m and so on.
But now i enter the search function and will search for something, now the 6 give me a 6 and not a m. Could i edit the keyboard.xml or remote.xml so that i have in the search function the sms keyboard ?

In XBMC Settings_> System _> Input Devices [ENABLE] "Remote comtrol sends keyboard presses"

Sorry for the double post my mobile broadband sucx :-(

sorry i think my english is not so good, so you dont understand me
I use only your reg key to enable the mce remote. Then i use the standard keyboard.xml come with xbmc. I have then make a keyboard.xml in my userdata with this content:
When i now enter my movie library i could scroll through the library with 6=m again 6 jumps to n and so on. That´s all ok.
When i now make the search function in the skin and search any content and i press 6 he wrotes 6. Is there any chance to make that in search function i have an sms write too, so that xbmc writes a m when i press 6 and not a 6 ?

I understand now :-O
You seem to have done everything correctly but if I remeber correctly someone else reported this in another thread. Not sure if its related or is it an issue with XBMC 10.1 !
JUMPSMS will not work the way you did it!
I suggest you download my keyboard.xml v1.81 and place it in your userdata folder instead of the one you already have. And then add all the options as above to it then you should not have any issue. It seems to work with a full keyboard.xml and not just partial editions. :-)

it did not work.
I have now copy your keyboard.xml with my addons to my C:\Users\Eisi2005\AppData\Roaming\XBMC\userdata\keymaps dir
the xml has now the following content:
In my Y:\XBMC\system\keymaps keyboard.xml is the following content:
In search i didn´t have sms keyboard, only numbers. Or could i use in search only the virtual keyboard ?

At first big thanks for this nice tutorial. Have been using eventghost for some time but after I switched to win 7 eventghost can`t find my mce remote any more. So I tried your way and I`m really happy with it.
Just one tiny question. How can I switch from windowed mode to full screen mode with the remote? It`s the keyboard button "\".

Yes this "\" will switch to fullscreen. BTW the GSB script will be able to maximise XBMC if its windowed using your green start button, it might be with title bar though ;-)
Edit: if you want to use one of the buttons on your remote to send "\" then just use MCERemotemapper
Choose the button you want to use and make sure no boxes are ticked against it then from the dropdown menu select "OemPipe" if I remember correctly it represents the "\"

Yeah already tried the MceRemoteMapper, what an amazing little tool btw, but couldn`t find the blacksplash in the menu. OemPipe is the solution. Thanks EG!
