Microsoft Remote Debounce

Posted by admin on Apr 13, 2012 in HTPC, MediaPortal |

The MCE remote implements something called “debounce”, which means that with each button press the remote alternates the signal code it sends, I think to limit accidental double button presses. Hence, when you program your universal remote it only has one of the codes, so it will work the first time you press it but wont work again until after you’ve pressed something else.

To disable debounce you need to change a registry key. Find this key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\HidIr\Remotes\745a17a0-74d3-11d0-b6fe-00a0c90f57da

and change the value of the EnableDebounce DWORD value on the right hand side from 1 to 0. Reboot for it to take effect.
