Tilt Wheel Not Detected

Post by pplwatcher »

XMBC Version[2.19.2]:
Windows Version[10]:
Mouse Information (brand/model)[Logitech Anywhere MX]:
Relevant Computer Information (CPU, RAM etc)[Intel Xeon / 64bg]:
Did the problem occur after an upgrade of XMBC? (If so, from what version?)[N/A]:
Did the problem occur after a Windows update/upgrade? (If so, from what version?)[N/A]:
How long have you used XMBC?[1day]:
What language and keyboard layout do you use in Windows?[US]:

Clear description of the problem - try and include as much information as possible, including what button and mappings you are having problems with (if applicable).:

In the console, I can define action on Tilt Wheel Left and Right. But I don't think it works. The XMBC does not highlight the item when the mouse is operated unlike other cases such as Left or Right button.

Is there a way to activate the tilt wheel on my mouse?

You are correct, if XMBC does not highlight the tilt dropdown boxes when you press tilt left/right, then XMBC is not seeing the messages from the mouse. Usually (esp. with Logitech devices) this is because the mouse software has changed the behaviour to work differently (change the messages at a lower level than XMBC).

You may find that Logitech software has changed the default behaviour of the tilt wheel. You may be able to configure it in Logitech's Options/SetPoint software to behave differently, so that it sends the normal windows messages that XMBC can see and intercept.

Thanks! When I shut the set point down, it works as intended.
