The actual final raspxbmc version of February 2nd 2013 works perfect compared to the previous code drops. I have a Hama MCE remote control and it now works perfectly. Even the mouse pad works fine out of the box. Unfortunately the Context menu doesn't work - at least that's what I thought and read in the net. I spent hours to find a way to get this fixed and finally detected the file /opt/xbmc-bcm/xbmc-bin/share/xbmc/system/keymaps/hama_mce.xml on my pi and detected that contextmenu function is already mapped to a key on my hama MCE. But I didn't expect this key to be the contextmenu key.

 

Contents of the file:

 
<keymap>
   <global>
      <keyboard>>
           <f14>VolumeDown</f14>
           <f13>Mute</f13>
           <numpadtimes>Info</numpadtimes>  <!--star key -->
           <numpadfive mod="alt">ContextMenu</numpadfive>  <!--hash key -->
           <return mod="alt">XBMC.ActivateWindow(Home)</return>  <!--Start key -->
           <f4 mod="alt">Info</f4>  <!--close key -->
           <r mod="ctrl">Info</r>   <!--record key -->
      </keyboard>
   </global>
</keymap>
 
You just have to press the hash key (#) and will get the context menu. Unfortunately it's not documented. You have to check the mapping xml files.  But fortunately the comment  explains which key has to be pressed to invoke the contextmenu. I don't understand why the defintion of No 5 on Numpad is triggered by pressing the # key on numpad of Hama MCE ...
