I've plugged an MCE-compatible hama 52451 remote to a windows 7 SP1 x64 box. When I start winlirc and configure the MCEVista64 plugin, I keep getting the message "Winlirc failed to initialize". I have tried various compatibility modes and the 3 MCE plugins (XP, Vista, Vista64) : nothing seems to work. Am i missing a point ?

    Hi, I've only tested the plugin on official hardware so it's possible there are some difference on the hama remote that stop it working. Some MCE plugins just send the key presses to windows, and aren't 'real' MCE devices. What driver is it using ? The other thing you need to do is .. login as administrator. Due to the driver architecture it will only work in administrator mode.
