The original creator of this plugin (Brett Stottlemyer) seems to be disappeared from the forum, but his plugin, which you can find here: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=1789, was meanwhile improved by others.
To share the latest modified version in the usual location, the first post, this thread was created.
- Bug fixes
- Increased buffer size
- Automatically connecting to pipe if not connected and IR code should be transmitted
- Checking if some other device is sending IR commands and wait for it to finish before transmitting IR code
- Plugin is now in the .egplugin format
- Service is not automatically started any more if it's not running (did only work if EG has been executed as admin anyway)
- Added some events for Connected/Disconnected

I don't know, but the original one from Microsoft is working.someguy1 wrote:Why doesn't this plugin work with Hama MCE remote? Tried all versions of this, no help.
I guess you installed the "AlternateMceIr Service"?
Can anyone else confirm that it's not working with Hama device?
I've searched extensively in this forum after any references to Hama, found this post viewtopic.php?f=2&t=1789&start=405 but it seems he wasn't able to get it working either with that old version of the plugin.
Furthermore, with the old plugin after installing the service, it ran automatically after reboot, but this new one doesn't. So after adding the plugin to EG i gotta press install service there, but still won't work.
I get no signal recognition whatsoever from it in EG. Maybe need to uninstall the device's own drivers first somehow?
Anyhow this remote will never work with EG, they should put that on their site so people avoid buying it. This is not a real remote, it just sends keyboard strokes.
Yes, I guess that's the reasonAnyhow this remote will never work with EG, they should put that on their site so people avoid buying it. This is not a real remote, it just sends keyboard strokes.
I can recommend the Original Microsoft MCE Receiver...
As a tip: Look for an receiver with IR blaster, these are usually correct working MCE receivers.
If you want to use your remote, you could try the Keyboard plugin (but this would also create events if you press the key on the keyboard)
