View Full Version : MCE Remote + vista 32 + eventghost

January 26th, 2009, 03:16 AM
Thought I'd start a thread about this as it's the only thing stopping me from sacking Vista Media Center altogether.

I want to use my mce remote with boxee via eventghost. I followed the instructions in this thread (http://forum.boxee.tv/showthread.php?t=3816) but can't get it to work. The replacement driver didn't seem to work in eventghost and the XBMC plugin wasn't found and I couldn't find instructions on how to install it.

Anyone else having the same problem or got this working in vista 32? Any solutions/alternatives to eventghost? Is there an eta on an eventserver being included into boxee?

Thanks for your reply. There seems to be lots of threads of information about various solutions and alternatives. I'll see if I can figure it out.

I did read that there is a built in solution for xbmc, an eventserver or something? Is it worth me waiting for this to be ported to boxee?


OK, I now know what the problem was. I got what I thought was the latest version of eventghost, but what I needed was the latest beta NIGHTLY version of the program. I had already installed EG and it told me I had the latest versh so I thought I was good to go.

Excuse my ignorance. I hope this helps someone else.
