I made a tutorial for myself so i thought that i could also upload it. I know that there are more tuts like this so please be kind
Things i have installed:
XBMC 1.0 FINAL
Things you need:
An MCE REMOTE ( If you are not using an MCE Remote, the plugin for your specific remote may be available anyway, at step 4 below, simply look for your own remote, rather than an MCE compatible one.)
The XBMCRepeater plugin for EventGhost (more comprehensive than the plugin built into EventGhost, but may take more time to figure out. This guide will not lay out the differences between the two.)
Ok it's time to begin.
- Install Eventghost
- Start Eventghost as Administrator
- Click on Configuration and choose ADD PLUGIN.
- Now choose for Microsoft MCE Remote and click on OK
- You wil get an pop-up where you can adjust BUTTON TIMEOUT RELEASE (i just leave it at default.)
- Make sure you checked Disable HID service for this remote
- Now choose for XBMC and click on OK.
- Click on OK when the pop-up menu appears
- I personally prefer to disable the standard X10/Zoom Player/Winamp.
- When i press the MENU button on my remote i want the CONTEXT MENU in XBMC to showup. So i now press MENU on my remote and on the left part of the screen you will see the following
- Drag and drop the lightning icon to the corresponding XBMC key (CONTEXT MENU in this case). This is what you will get:
- Now you can repeat part 11 and 12 to link the correct MCE remote buttons to the correct XBMC commands.
- EventGhost must always be running in order to allow your remote to interact with XBMC.
Some buttons like UP/DOWN/LEFT/RIGHT are already pre-defined by the Keyboard Emulator in the Context Folder. You do not have to add them. If you do you will get troubles in XBMC. (if you press down it will go down several times instead of 1x). You may still choose to define them, but be sure to disable the Keyboard Emulation folder.
NOTE: To more closely and comprehensively match the experience of using an old Xbox remote or to control XBMC remotely, use the XBMCRepeater plugin for EventGhost, which must be installed separately.
I hope this will help someone with setting up Eventghost.
Please be kind, i only did this to help people. Im no expert, started using eventghost today so maybe this isn't the ideal setup but im always open to learn things
