So far the Microsoft IR Keyboard I bought cheap on ebay let me program all the Alt + A-Z, etc etc. I added the learned commands to my MCE Keyboard device. It really should be part of the standard set though so people don't need to buy the IR Keyboard and program things them-selfs.

I recently purchased an harmony 650, and have successfully programmed it to work with my cable box and my media center PC. I used the Media center SE device to get access to some of its commands, and I have two questions.
1) I am using the mouse controls in one of my Activity so I can move the mouse using arrow keys , vol +/- and Chan +/-. It works well, but I was wondering if there is a way to adjust the speed of the mouse motion. I tried to go in the accessibility / mouse settings, but they seem to be independent from the mouse control command the remote sends.
2) It looks like no Media Center device has all the command (regular + Keyboard + SE). If I select the device 1040 (ref of my Msft remote), I have a set of commands, If I use the keyboard, I have others, and the Media Center SE has again a different subset. Given the remote is limited to 5 devices, I cant just load the 3 to have them all.
Is there any reason why ALL the commands could not be put inside One Media Center device. If there is a technical reason, could then all media center devices count as One, or is this done to force us to buy a more expensive units ?
Thank you for a great product !
