Why can't you use the standard MCE profile on your FLIRC and just use those media keys? I ran WMC for years with all the media keys. Seems like we're re-inventing the wheel here.

That was what I tried first, without success. I posted several supprt requests on the FLIRC site without receiving a response. Have you had any success witrh the FLIRC MCE profile?

Yes, but it was several years ago. I don't remember the exact details, but I didn't have to do anything special. Perhaps the application you're controlling simply doesn't recognize those commands.

The application I'm controlling (MediaPortal) has responded perfectly to various RC6 remotes (and universal remotes programmed to act as such) for over 15 years. I got the idea to use FLIRC as a keyboard from a fellow MediaPortal (MP) user. I can control MP just fine with ordinary keystrokes, but I was interested in extending the keyboard DU just for the sake of completeness and as a service to the community. Also, the Windows system on which I run MP has developed a nasty habit of starting up muted, which currently compel me to get out a real Windows RF keyboard to fix. However, I now have a strategy for adding the Windows media keys (see earlier post above). I just haven't had time to try it out yet. Also, It will only help those using a FLIRC IR receiver, instead of being the full replacement of a Windows keyboard I was aiming for.
