    Shutdown media engine

    I am using Media engine in my living room as well as in the car. I am using it with a CIMR 100 remote. Is there a function # for exit, or is shutdown the only option? Alternatively, is there a way to just shut it down with the remote?

    I have a couple of game station emulators on that machine (PS2 and N64) and if I run them from the "external apps" menu they hide Media engine, no app bar, so I am then stuck in the game and have to ctrl alt del and kill media engine. I suspect this is due to their directx overlay and not a problem with media engine.

    if i could just kill media engine with the remote so I could start the emulators on their own, I can work things so media engine restarts on its own after I am done with the emulator.

    Alternatively, does anybody know of an emulator that is compatible with media engines external app function?

    There's no remote function to exit the app.

    The emulator problems you have are common with directx overlay stuff. If there's a way to exit the emulator app so it's parent process terminates, it should return you to M/E.
