Stopping Media Centre

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Windows 7. How do you stop media centre from loading when you press menu button the Microsoft remote? I have Mediaportal to autostart, so if you press menu whilst navigating mediaportal, mc loads up.

Go into MP Configuration, then 'Additional 3rd Party Checks', can't remember what's actually in that screen, but one of them is to implement MPTray, which will disable 'green button' start-up of WMC.

I also run both MediaPortal and WMC (for my HDHomeRun Prime). Under Win 7 you can PIN an application to the tray and activate it with the Win-# command. I have my Harmony 300i programed to trigger Win-1, Win-2 from the first 2 of the 5 buttons they have around the INPUT button. This way I start MP with a remote button and all is well... well, maybe not since running WMC can be triggered using the GUIDE and Live-TV buttons! YES, pressing either of those will start WMC. Oh, I also assigned Alt-F4 to the "0" button so I can terminate any app in focus.

Given the overlap I described above, I have NOT seen any conflict on the MENU button. Or are you talking about the GREEN button?
