Changing the IR receiver setting for an MD or a Core/Hybrid is very easy just got to Web Admin -> Wizard -> Devices ->Media Directors and then scroll to the MD you want to change the IR receiver setting on and select it from the 'IR Receivers' pop up - choose mce_usb. Next choose your remote from the 'Add Remote' button. The Vista MCE remote is not currently listed... but its possible that it will work with one of the standard MCE remote settings. Once you have selected the receiver and the remote you need then scroll to the bottom of the page and click 'Update'
Hope the above helps
Absolutely! It's been fun playing with LMCE. I am getting HDHomeRun and a XP-MCE remote this week!
