MCE Controller allows you to remotely control another Windows PC on your network. For example it allows you to simulate a press of any button on the Windows Media Center IR remote control from another computer; if MCE Controller receives the string “mypictures” it will tell Media Center to go to the “My Pictures” page.
Today a user asked how to send Unicode characters such £ and € and I added this functionality to the newly released version 1.5.0.
Now with v1.5.0 you can do this to send the Euro dollar symbol to MCE Controller, which will “type” it on the remote machine MCE Controller is running on (in this case 192.168.0.5 at port 5150):
echo chars:\u20AC| nc.exe 192.168.0.5 5150 -w 1
