Well I'm new to the HTPC and attempted several methods in order to connect my standard HVR-1600 to ASTC and STB. The only issue is I do not have a "Microsoft" USB IR, just the one that came with the 1600. Although I might have to bite the bullet and shell out another $40+ dollars for a new remove and receiver I'm attempting not too.
Is there a program that will allow me to use the standard HVR-1600 hardware. I have attempted MediaPortal 0.2.3 and Vista MCE, both need the additional receiver. I have tried the newest version on MP RC1 does not support the card at all.
I would like to be able to use one remote as well as the IR blaster that came with the 1600. If anyone has any input or workaround please let me know.
