Is there no option to customize the keys anymore? I use a 360 controller to browse XBMC (as I frequently flip over to steam to play games) and no button on the controller will exit the browser once it has loaded. I believe the options should be in advanced area of the config panel, but mine has nothing in there dealing with customizing the keys.

this surely is a great add-on for XBMC, I would like to express my gratitude for it. Using the control utility, I'm able to return to XBMC (IIRC by using the 'BrowserBack' command that is mapped to my remote's back-button).

However (there's always a catch, isn't there?), I'm having a hard time getting my MCE remote (of the 'ehome' variety) to pause/play my video. I used ShowKey to tell me which commands are sent, and I see these two below:

WM_APPCOMMAND 46: Begin playing at the current position

KeyShow doesn't provide the xml to be changed/added in the config file, I guess because the commands are different.

Is there a way to make this remote control's play/pause buttons work for netflixbmc? (They work great in xbmc itself by the way)

I ran a search on this thread for 'WM_APPCOMMAND' and 'ehome' but that yields no results...

Alternatively: I'm actually using a Logitech Harmony remote that 'mimmicks' the MCE remote, so if there is a way to get play/pause to work with some Logitech Harmony-trick, I'd be very interested to hear about it.

Thanks a lot!


I stumbled upon an add-on called MCERemote, I'm currently trying to get that to work. Seems to be developed for exactly this purpose though, so I have high hopes...

***EDIT 2***
MCERemote does the job.
