MCE Remotes

NextPVR reads keypresses and MCE remote commands by default. The file keymappings.xml in the NextPVR data directory lists and defines the keys. Also see the Keyboard Reference.

For more advanced configurations using an MCE remote you may wish to disable NPVR's built in MCE remote support.

Programs used for this include:

Some guides for controlling NPVR directly without needing it to have focus can be found (along with some ready made downloadable configurations) here:
