I recently bought this remote: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...ef=oss_product
Which I believe is the same as this remote: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16823166095
; except it doesn't have the "Adesso" brand on it.
I love everything about the remote, except for the way the yellow, blue, green, and red buttons work. The remote has them already assigned to do certain things in Media Center: Yellow (My TV) - opens My TV application, Blue (My Music) - opens My Music application, Green (My Pictures) - opens My Pictures application, and Red (My Videos) - opens My Videos application.
In Media Player Classic-Home Cinema, I've gone into "Options", "Keys" and I've mapped the next audio to MCE_Yellow, next subtitles to MCE-Blue Jump Backward (Small) to MCE_Green, Jump Forward (Small) to MCE_Red, Exit to Browser_Back, Increase Rate to Media_Fast_Forward, and
Decrease Rate to Media_Rewind.
Now, here's the problem. When I'm playing a movie, here's what the keys actually do: Yellow - nothing. Blue - Audio 0%, hit it again and it says audio 100%. But there is no actual change in audio volume. Green - Displays the time of how far into the movie I am. Red - Returns me to the very beginning of the movie. Browser Back - Nothing (Doesn't Close MPC) Fast Forward and rewind also do nothing in MPC-HC.
One of the reviews on Amazon stated that: "this is not truly a "remote"; It simulates keyboard presses instead." So if I could find out what keystroke(s) the buttons on the remote actually represent, then I could go into MPC-HC and assign those keyboard keys (that correspond to the remote's buttons) to next audio, etc.! Does anyone know how or where I can find out what button, on my remote, corresponds to what keystroke?
As a last ditch resort, i will buy this program: http://melloware.com/products/intelliremote/
In the product manual, it lists my remote as being compatible. Has anyone used this program or know of a cheaper alternative that will work with my remote? Intelliremote is $24; for that price, I might just buy a different remote. In which case, can you guys recommend to me a similarly priced remote that I can map 4 colored buttons to?
