xbmc is a nice, highly customizable media center. and you can seamlessly use either its internal player or an external one for playback. i use xbmc + mpc-hc.what media player are you guys using? I want to use win 7 but would like a nice interface to my TV when browsing movies
thanks will give it a goEasiest way I've found is to set up the remote as an MCE Keyboard in the Logitech software. That way you can assign the buttons to a keypress on a keyboard.
There's a list of XBMC keyboard shortcuts here.
You can also get more involved, editing the keymaps.xml and such but try that out and if you need more there are a lot of resources out there.
