Adding remote buttons

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I'm using a Harmony 600 to control my PC. Is there a way to create an XBMC button? I want to be able to still use one button to open WMC and another to access XBMC. I also wouldn't mind a last channel option. I find it odd that isn't a default choice in the logitech menu.

You can put XBMC in the first position on the taskbar and than map it to the Win +1 command on the remote.

Some dongle drivers also have hotkeys that you can assign to shortcuts.

And as Sammy2 told me a while back, Select/OK works as Last Channel in WMC. Not sure about XBMC.

Sorry, but I'm not sure exactly what this means...

The select/ok maps as last channel in WMC?

Right click the XBMC icon on the desktop or in the program list under the Start button. Select "Pin to Taskbar". When it is on the taskbar, left click and hold, then drag it all the way to the left next to the Start button.

In the Logitech remote set up software, map a key to be Win +1 on the remote. That key will load XBMC when clicked on the remote.

Yes. For some odd reason, MS decided to make the OK/Enter key the last channel key.
