Yep, not after hundreds of euros for the whole system.
Anyway the part that bothers me is the shipping time more than the money. Usually I can find these devices only on some internet shop that if I'm lucky is in Europe. In this case, I have to wait from 1 to 2 weeks before getting the package.
If the place they send the item from is USA then... eheh, maybe I could get a solder and some instructions and try to make my own device before the package gets to my door.
Anyway thanks for the info, I'll definitely look in that direction.


Well, actually no...
So you think it is a problem of uirt reliability?
Sticking a blaster to the ir window of the device I want to control will definitely cut out any possible interference and/or reflection. But I was hoping to get the same result through some trial and error with the usb-uirt placement.

hmm! For a moment I tought I was over with the hardware purchasing...

Hmm, bad news then...
I tried too many times to reproggram it to still consider it a software problem, though.
I begin to believe it could be the placement of the blaster and/or the various nearby surfaces. Some of them could somehow reflect the signal?
In my configuration I have the blaster really near the XBOX, at about 40cm.
Do you have a similar setup? I'll try to move around the dongle/XBOX to see whether it changes something.

Just toying around some more with LMCE and decided to control my XBOX 360 (that I use for HD-DVD playing reasons) as well.
So I bought an USB-UIRT and after some struggling with it simply ignoring the ir codes I threw at it, finally I have "mapped" the HD-DVD remote to a brand new device in LMCE.
Everything's fine, 'till I use the XBOX 360. Every Fiire chief keypress is simply transmitted twice or thrice (or at least this is the result I obtain).
I tried to reprogram a couple of times all the keys on the remote but with the same results.
Anyone else got this behaviour? And maybe solved it?

It was definitely the Orbiter...
I changed the timeout from 600,600 to a greater value and after a quick router reload it worked.
By the way, why 2 values?

Anyway, thanks both of you for your precious hints!

I'll check that out...

It' probably something stupid here that I'm missing, but I keep having my Yamaha receiver being shut down after 5 minutes.
This happens when the system is not playing media.
Once powered off also my usb-irt controlled plasma TV goes down in few minutes because of the lack of a video signal.
So far so good but a couple of questions arise:

Can I specify the amount of time to pass before the power off of the receiver (and where has to be done)?

Is there a way, preferibly using the fiire remote, to power on the receiver (and maybe the tv, as the tv is my primary screen)?
Have I to "program" an event/scenario? Or is there a simpler way to achieve this?

Im my mind, since was LMCE turning off the receiver, I thought pressing a button on the remote would instruct LMCE to "resume" the normal activity, hence powering back on the devices it switched off because of the idle state... clearly it's not happening.

Users / media player behaviour - back to last selection possible?

I'm another newbie trying to explore the depths of LME.
Apart from the little setup problems I have yet to overcome, I have a question regarding the "usability" of the media player interface.

I noticed that the default behaviour of the player is, when a video ends, to  get you back to the beginning of the media list, no matter the filters/searches/scrolls you you did in order to select the video to watch.
I find much more comfortable to get through a search or scroll down to the media i want to play, and when it ends, be brought back to the page or the searched list of items I where just before hitting play.
It's even more useful in case of a list of short media contents that a user could want to play one after the other (although in this scenario maybe a playlist could suffice, but I don't know how this functionality works in LME, yet).

So my question is: is there an option, somewhere, to set the behaviour of the interface the way I described?
Or any other method, that is.

Thanks in advance,
