Harmony and MCE RC-6 Emulation - Tesla - 2012-01-09 03:18
Just something else I figured out that might not be obvious to everyone ...
My (HP Model) MCE Remote doesn't have the 4 colored buttons, but they can still be assigned XBMC functions, and easily assigned to the Harmony ... since it's emulating a MCE Remote.

I notice that the same question had been repeated by a few members without any replies. It seems that certain builds are missing this plugin (latest Openelec Eden build in my case). My earlier builds worked perfectly.
Is there anywhere that we can download the mceremote.zip file directly? All the original links seem to have been removed.
Thanks in advance.

I'm running 10.1 . It was available for download inside XBMC, in the Add-ons section.
In v10.1, the MCE (RC-6) remote works pretty good in the basic stock install, but this Add-on really kicks it into high gear.
Sorry, I can't help with Eden ... I'm just learning the finer points of Dharma.

You would need to see if your remote has learning capabilities and if it can emulate your "system" device (ie; your TV or your AV Receiver). XBMC and it's remote commands will not be able to control this.
Also, as a side-note: For those of you who cannot find this in the plug-in repositories is that because this is only compatible with Windows? I do not know if that is true or not, but my understanding is that this plug-in doesn't work with Live or Openelec or those guys (at least from what I've seen).

if i on my onkyo avr, i cant hold left/right button and continously scroll. if i turn off my onkyo avr, i can scroll by holding left/right button.
i dont know if this is the perfect place to ask, but ill ask anyway. mod can move my post to more appropriate place.

Since installing this (I think), niether to arrows on my remote or my keyboard work to navigate in text/search windows. Any suggestions?

I'm puzzled, I have an HP HDX remote, I added 6e,00,00,00,01,cd,00 to a registry file and imported it to my registry so my play/pause button would work. I rebooted and it's still not detecting it when I use showkey20.exe
anyone who has this remote mind telling me what they did to get it working?
this is the key I put it under
Every other button on the remote gets a response in showkey. On this remote the play/pause is 1 hybrid button.

Thank you for this awesome plugin.
Before I had manually modified the registry settings on my main htpc to set it up properly and it was a pain. (Because as you know, out of the box mce remote's "info" button does not work for xbmc and there is no "context menu" button set up. And not to mention if you press the wrong button it fires up the annoying windows media center)
But for a secondary htpc, I just decided to use your plugin instead and I can't believe how easy it was. Great job.
The only feature I can suggest would be adding the functionality for setting up JumpSMS through the plugin as well. Although I understand it is more complicated than it sounds because the script would have to check and append the keyboard.xml if it already exists.
And just to confirm, there are three parts to getting JumpSMS to work correctly without breaking other functions. 1) adding the JumpSMSX mappings in Global, 2) adding NumberX mappings in fullscreenvideo (so you can enter a time to jump to during playback) and 3) adding NumberX mappings in virtualkeyboard (I believe this is necessary for the virtual keyboard to work properly with jumpsms set globally, I have had this in my keyboard.xml for years because at the time I believed it was required, but can't remember if I tested it extensively)
And also to others who were wondering, this addon worked just fine in Eden RC2 on win7x64; you just have to run xbmc as admin, but the addon reminds you to do that anyway.

If you have a copy of Dharma, and go download the MCERemote from the official xbmc.org add-ons, you will find in window in %appdata%/xbmc/addons/packages the zip file in question.
I am curious whether this plugin works fine in Eden too., as XBMC is my primary tv viewing solution I am afraid to upgrade and break my setup which works perfectly under Dharma. This plugin is essential for my setup and this is the first thing I checked whether works or not in Eden.
