So i have a perfect xbmc build on osx side, but i wanted to try bootcamp because of hd audio.
Now i get this weird problem that each time i enter xbmc and use the remote, the volume adjust on the os level of things, no matter which button i press. then i thought i had forgotten to set harmony remote as input device
but there isnt that setting like it is on osx, just peripherals which is greyed out.
anyone know whats up?
installed bootcamp on my mac - no harmony remote input option?

It depends on what IR receiver you're using. In Windows many IR receivers generate APPCOMMAND messages and by default XBMC ignores these. The messages get passed to Windows where they change the system volume.
If you want XBMC to handle the volume APPCOMMANDs itself you need to create a mapping file. Press Windows-R and in the Run dialog type:
Click OK and answer yes when you're prompted to create a new file. Copy and paste the following into Notepad:
Close Notepad and save the changes.
If the volume buttons still don't work we'll need to see a debug log. Enable debug logging from System settings, System, Debugging, and restart XBMC then wait a minute or two for all the startup tasks to finish. Now press the volume down button three times then the volume up button three times, then close XBMC.
Open the debug log by pressing Windows-R and in the Run dialog type:
(including the quotes). Click OK and the log should open in Notepad. Copy and paste the log into http://pastebin.com/ and post the link it gives you here.
