Found this in another forum after a great deal of searching...

Kudos to the original author because it worked for me

There's a more permanent solution to this issue you may be interested in trying, I stumbled on it after a couple of hours experimentation when I discovered the same problem in City of Heroes/Villains and my Saitek gamepad profiler.

If you use the Microsoft eHome remote/receiver (official media centre remote and USB receiver) you'll notice under your device manager you have a new device named Microsoft eHome MCIR 109 Keyboard; this is the cause of the tilde key not working. It also affects your plus, minus, parenthesis, hash, @, and slash keys remapping them to different functions. (some are even weird Kanji characters)

Solution is as follows and will not affect the functionality of your Media Centre remote:

1. Go into Device Manager -> Keyboards.

2. Right-click "Microsoft eHome MCIR 109 Keyboard", choose "Update Driver" ("Update Driver Software" on Vista).

3. Choose "Browse my computer for software" (XP users tell it not to install automatically and say you'll specify the location, then when it asks you where you would like it to search for drivers choose the option to choose from a list) then "Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer".

4. Make sure "show compatible hardware" is checked, then select "HID-compliant device" and click next. Click any remaining "OK" or "Finish" buttons after Windows has installed the driver.

By making it use the generic "HID-Compliant Device" driver it still retains whatever function it provided (although when testing I didn't find it gave ANY function, was more of a redundant device), but it will no longer interfere with games or applications which poll input in whatever specific manner causes them to be affected by this bug. Logitech staff might want to add this information to their knowledge base or sticky it somewhere for users of Microsoft's Media Centre Remote, as it will affect the G15 adversely in random games/applications otherwise.

Are you using a gamepad? I'm using the 360 controller and when you do that it disables the keyboard, so you cannot actually open the console.

What I do is go into settings and disable the 360 controller, bring up the console and type in whatever cheats you want, then re-enable the 360 controller.

THIS DOES WORK FOR WINDOWS 7

FROM START MENU
CLICK DEVICES AND PRINTERS
RIGHT CLICK ON YOUR COMPUTER and select "KEYBOARD SETTINGS"
CLICK HARDWARE TAB
SELECT Microsoft eHome MCIR 109 Keyboard or similar and hit "properties"
HIT "CHANGE SETTINGS"
SELECT DRIVER TAB
HIT "update driver"

3. Choose "Browse my computer for software"

, then when it asks you where you would like it to search for drivers choose the option to choose from a list) then "Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer".

4. Make sure "show compatible hardware" is checked, then select "HID-compliant device" and click next. Click any remaining "OK" or "Finish" buttons after Windows has installed the driver.




restart FO3 if its running....
