Hi All,

I have recently started to notice a problem with my remote setup. When I press a button, like the down arrow, occasionally my computer is decoding it as a "7" for example instead of the down arrow. I notice this in Emby when trying to scroll through the movie library- it is really annoying when a number gets entered because it treats that as search and takes you back to the beginning of the library. In other programs it takes a couple of button presses sometimes to register. I only noticed this problem the past few months.

Has anybody had similar problems? My first suspicion is a Windows 10 update may have broken something, but I can't find anything useful Googling that.

Are there other ideas of ways to test this? I have tested 3 remotes (two JP1 based and one standard WMC remote) and they all behave this way. I only have one IR receiver- could it be going bad? I have a Thrustmaster program that decodes key-strokes (used for validating mapping of keyboard keys to joystick buttons) and it reports out that the 7 key has been pressed instead of the arrow on occasion confirming the behavior I see in Emby.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Are you using a JP1 remote to control your PC? If so, which remote, which upgrade are you using and what hardware are you using on the PC side?

I use an RCA RCRP05BR remote primarily. The receiver is an IR605 USB dongle that came with a Rosewill RRC-126 WMC remote.

The upgrade I use for it is setup code 1272: Windows Media Center v2.

Is that a built in setup code, or something that you loaded as an upgrade? If it's an upgrade, please provide a link to the actual file as the setup code number is meaningless in upgrades.

I initially set up this remote probably 6 or 7 years ago and don't remember where or how I figured it out the mapping. The RMIR file I use is here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1C7r9tf9gjWwWZX3iFH3na2u5IBfgbYE7/view?usp=sharing if that helps get at what you are looking for.
