For 1 entire year, my buttons that are having a problem WORKED FLAWLESSLY ("Play", "Pause", "Stop", "Rewind" "Fast Forward") but after restoring my OS
to the original state of the PC, and then re-installing Kodi, I'm having this same problem.
I know that my "Play" etc buttons work, because I programmed the "Play" button to another device's function, but I can't get them to control Kodi.
I am a person that enjoys a challenge but this is getting ridiculous.
Tonight I will have to reload the OS again and then re-install Kodi and see what happens.
*bangs his head against a wall for infinity*
Did you ever figure out a solution to getting your "Play", "Pause", "Stop", "Rewind" "Fast Forward" to work with Kodi?
If so, what did you do?
I think I may have found a possible solution (see the bottom/last posts in the link below).
Last night I DID remove the eHome Receiver in Device Manager and then rebooted the PC to see if that will re-install the Microsoft eHome Receiver correctly, but
alas, it didn't work.
Tonight I will try this "disable the MS eHome Receiver" and then "scan for hardware changes" as described in the link below.
I will post my result.
All I did was take out the USB connection for the eHome Receiver and put it back into the PC into a different USB slot, but before that, I removed
the Microsoft eHome Interface device in Device Manager, then I synced the remote and all of the buttons that did not work, now worked (ie Play, Stop, Pause, Rewind, and Fast forward). My only dismay is that I wished I had tried this sooner. If anyone else has a problem like I did where only a few buttons did not work, but the rest of the buttons on the Harmony remote did work, then try what I did!
What a great way to start a weekend!!!!! Yayyy!!
Small update with my Harmony remote "some of the buttons" not working saga...
After I removed the Microsoft eHome Receiver and re-installed it (the physical USB cable) and it worked, I watched a movie.
But the next day, when I went to test out the Harmony remote before the next movie, the same buttons didn't work while everything else did (Play, Pause, Stop, Fast Forward, and Rewind did not work).
All I did was physically remove the Microsoft eHome Receiver USB connection and plug it back in and it then worked.
I'll keep you guys updated if it keeps happening and let you know how this story pans out....
