you might be best off going to the meedios forums to find out if the IR recveiver in the case is supported by the meedios software.
If not you need to find a middle ware software that can capture the IR commands that are being read by the IR receiver in the case and then have the ability to send those commands to meedios.
For example I run Media Player Classic and Zoom Player both of which don't by default know how to interpret the commands of the Microsoft USB IR receiver that I have and use with Windows Media Center.
So someone came up with a middle ware application: http://melloware.com/products/intelliremote/
Intelliremote takes the IR commands that get sent to the Microsoft USB IR receiver, and interpret them (basically becomes a middle man) and then sends those commands to Zoom Player and MPC so that I can still use my remote and IR receiver that I use for Vista Media Center to still control other apps.
make any sense?
