  • Media Engine 1.7.7.F using Creative Labs remote.

    Ok so this problem has been buggin the living crap out of me. Its been going for over a week now. I even ordered a new remote on eaby still the same exact problems. I unistalled - reinstalled ME still the same problem. Changed comms port from comm 1 to 2 and still the same problem. What give? plz help me out.

    The problem is that when I input or try to program the remot in ME, instead of doing what its suppost to do ei:
    instead of stoping the track it will mute.
    volume up, it will mute.
    colume down it will go to the next track, I got all kinds of whacked out errors.

    plz any help on this matter will be greatly apreciated.

    plz no "use girder" replies. I really dont want to use grider, cause I use ME full time.

    thanks for your time.

    Try this wee app i made for my creative remote. The reciever has to attached to com1. It should tell you if its putting out the right signal. at this stage i haven't tried the remote with ME. i will after this post.
    You will need to have the VB runtime files installed.

      I see what you mean. i used the IRMAN option, it seemed to be the only thing that recognise the commands. But i think that the problem lies there. Are you using IRman or creatives reciever. I think that the creative remote needs to be programmed in manually, unless someone else has got theres to work.

      I will have a go - i've got the current source code.

        Well i tried, they way the have coded the remotes is beyond me - it seems too complicated for just taking a command and processing it.

        So it looks like coding wise, the creative infra can't be used. unless you purchase a irman receiver or if carcomp adds the remote in (which would be a good suggestion for v2.0

            HMMM makes me wonder, cause I saw Defilers setup run just fine. He was using the creative labs remote.

            SO you did get the same errors?

                I have the creative remote, and it works fine, (I assume you are talking about the one that is credit-card sized) The only way I could get it to work was to set the remote type to "Creative CIMR" and then choose the right com-port, works like a charm now,,

                    Did the remote work with my app?

                      Super easy fix .... Open your keys.ini file and delete all of the contents... DON"T delete the file though. M.E will just create a new one with the same problem. So anyway after you have made the contents of keys.ini blank save it, then open m.e and then reprogram all your buttons. That will fix it. If not try this...

                      Check your settings for your comm port in the control panel. Make sure it is set to support 9600 baud for IRman and 2400 for CIMR. Those are the only settings that will work.


                      Its a case of my pre-programmed buttons conflicting with ones you program yourself. ME 2.0 doesn't have this problem. Also, when you turn the remote on for the first time in m.e, hold down a button for a few seconds. That "sets" the output speed of the remote and programs m.e for the correct repeat rate.

                            Alrighty ladies and gentelmen. THe problem has been fixed.

                            CarComp, I downloaded Media Engine this last weekend from your website, and I guess the EXE is NOT updated in the downloadable version of the program. I had version 1.7.7.F

                            The problem was resolved thanks to Defiler, he sent me the updated .exe

                            But everything is working just dandy now.

                            CarComp:: if there is anyway you can double check what im saying.

                            edit: I also tried the fixes posted above, and neither worked. In fact made things worst. When I deleted all the information in the the keys.ini it made my ME constatly restart.

                            Dunno dont ask

                            everything is working fine now and thats what matters.
