I've been working on configuring my mce remote to work with XBMC for 2 days now and I thought I would share the way I got it to work. I've search this forum and many others downloading and trying tons of programs (event ghost lirc ect) most was either really hard to configure or conflicted with windows media center or both then I stumbled across this cool program called controlremote and it worked in about 5 mins all I did was edit the default script to send the keyboard shortcut to xbmc when I pushed that button on the remote. I really only wanted the back button to go back and the info button to show the context menu.
here's the url:
the lines in the buttons.xml I changed are here
<button id="Back"><sendkeys key="back"/></button>
<button id="Details"><sendkeys key="c"/></button>
you may want to edit buttons-blank.xml and rename it to buttons.xml to get rid of junk you don't need
hope this helps someone cheers!
