Hi Guys

Trying to get MX-780 and MSC-400 working with Windows Media Center. The transport controls seem really flaky. I'm currently using AUX 252. MY remote is a Microsoft one and it says RC6 and Model 1039 on the back. Anyone know best code set to use, or can you recommend a different IR receiver for the media center PC?

Might want to play around with repeats. I had major problems trying to control one specific AOpen system a few years ago via URC - 85% of button pushes were sensed as sustained holds, which did not work well for cursor naviation or transport controls.

I use AUX 262 (I think it is at the top of the list, Media Center #1 or something like that).  It works very well with an IR310 receiver using iMON driver software.  The only drawback was  that it did not include the red-green-yellow-blue buttons on the standard WMC remote.  I just had the MX-880 learn these.

I use codeset 501 and 502 which is the rear USB port.
Don't mess around with anything else.

This is right out of the manual.

Using an appropriate USB cable, connect the USB2 port on the MSC-400 Rear Panel to a USB Port on a PC. The remote is programmed with Aux code set 501 or Aux 502 (Keyboard commands). The MSC-400 automatically routes Aux 501 or Aux 502 to the USB 2 port.

Most commands exist to use Windows Media Center. Just drag them on to a template you create.
You can also create any command you want with shortcut keys.

For example using CTRL+SHIFT+C as a macro will Turn on or off closed captioning.

The rear USB port works really well with Windows Media Center.
You can also launch programs by assigning Shortcut keys and creating macros.

You can find all the commands you will ever need here.
