  • windows media center remote

    I just got a windows media center remote from a friend. I am using media engine as my front end. How can I get this to work for me. The drivers install in xp. But media engine won't recognize it. Is there any way to make a usb virtual serial bridge of some sort?

    thread moved to the media engine forum since getting it to work will be dependent upon media engine.

      The media center remote is not supported by MediaEngine, and there are no plans to add it. I would suggest looking for an IRMan.

        I am not familiar with Media Engine and I am a newbie here (this is actually my first post) but you may be able to use a program called hip if Media Engine will accept keyboard commands. I used it to start sagetv, gbpvr, and beyondtv on a media center system using the "green button", as well as controlling set top boxes with the blaster. It has native support for a MCE remote and reciever. You can download it at It's been so long since I've used it so I can't walk you through setting it up, but you should be able to get help here I hope that helps.
