USB-UIRt + Windows 7 - are you able to wake your PC?

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
I'm trying to get this to work. I'm assuming the current drivers on the site do not support wake but curious if anyone is able to get this going and / or have drivers that actually work.

I only got the thing to wake / sleep my PC as I'm going to use a Dinovo Mini for the rest of the control. While the Dinovo Mini can wake the PC, I'm actually using another bluetooth receiver that doesn't wake the system up.

I couldn't ever get it to work with beta or RTM versions of Win7. Using release version of Win 7/64 bit now. Having no proplems using the DiNovo to wake up the pc. Didn't even install the logitec drivers; just used Win 7 drivers.


Edit:
Sorry, didn't read the question correctly. You got another response from the bump though

I haven't tried to get my usb-uirt to wake up my win7 box for at least a couple of months, but when I was trying, I never got it to work and I contacted the developer about it. He did send me out other drivers to try that supposedly had the wake-up functionality but I never tested it because at that point I switched to using the irtrans device in my case to wake up my pc. So, I would contact the usb-uirt developer about it.

Looks like the vista drivers (dated 2007) works in Win 7 and will wake up the PC. I just tried it out and it definitely worked. The developer said that they are still working on proper windows 7 drivers but to use this in the interim. The only bug I hear is that it will bsod the system if you have more than 8gb of RAM

As for the Dinovo Mini waking up the system - I'm actually using another bluetooth receiver so that I can connect other devices. The receiver I'm using will not wake the system. Not sure if there are bluetooth receivers that I can use that will wake the system but for now I think I'm set

Hopefully the old drivers don't mess things up

Even got my system to load Media Center when the system wakes up using EventGhost. Now finally have things working like I wanted it to!

Mine works with ordinary MCE remote/USB IR. Using default windows drivers.

Yeah but I'm using a USB-UIRT. I'm still debating whether I should just get rid of it and get something else but for the time being it works

This is a real pain in the ass not being able to wake the HTPC up in Windows 7!

mslide: I don't suppose you still have those drivers? As the usb-uirt website only has one driver for both Vista & Windows 7...

The developer has indicated the proper drivers are int he works, but the USB-UIRT does not wake from sleep. If you really want that functionality, go on Ebay and get a $10 HP MCE receiver. Works like a charm.

So you can get the Dinovo to wake from sleep? I have the Dinovo edge which is believe is the same but i'm not sure if it'll wake from sleep. I haven't messed much with it though. So when the pc's sleeping does any button wake from sleep or just the sleep button?

Oh you can use the dinovo BT reciever to connect other devices. You hold the connect button for a while or something. I doubt it'll fix your problem since it'll still register as only a bluetooth keyboard but now you'll have an extra reciever.

I've always been able to wake my machine w7x64 with usbuirt. You have to use a program that is available on the usbuirt forums.

I'm using USB-UIRT with Win 7 x32 every day to wake and sleep my system and have absolutely no issues. The problem you are experiencing is probably the result of installing the latest driver! It will not allow sleep/wakeup.

Try this driver USBUIRT_Vista_v20204

I was never able to get the new USBUIRT_Win7_Vista_v20216 to wake my machine.

I just got an email from Jon at USB-UIRT and he sent me a link to a new driver. This one seems to work for me, whereas all the rest would not.

www.usbuirt.com/USBUIRT_Win7_Vista_v20601.zip

Hope it works for you.

You may want to hold off on this one...my USB-UIRT is not recognized after sleep. I have to unplug it then plug it back in to work after I use it to wake the PC.

Yup, Jon emailed me the above driver as well. Works flawlessly on my Windows 7 x64 setup .

Does your PC recognize the usb-uirt after it wakes up?

I tried the new driver on Win 7 x86. The UIRT wakes up the computer and is not lost after resume. The problem with the new driver is that it still cannot wake up video (black screen after resume). Video can be activated by any mouse or keyboard activity or video device restart (the workaround for this issue). So it is effectively the same as the vista driver. MCE IR receiver does not have this problem.

Bricktop,

Check the last post of this thread:
http://65.36.202.170/phpBB2/viewtopi...ad4b733c69370c

I had the same problem with XP and this worked. There is a way to have a batch run when the computer comes out of standby but I don't have that info with me. I ran a different batch at the computers startup and it added the Devcon batch to run after wake up. A google search will probably find it quicky...hope this helps.

Edit: a quick search found this:

and also this thread started by me which is what I used...answer in the second post:

I would recommend the event-driven EventGhost or similar for this purpose even if you don't plan to remote this computer. I use the similar idea to deal with the video issue on EventGhost. With EventGhost, it is easy to manipulate how a sequence is excuted triggered by different events (by enabling or disabling certain portion of the sequence) without dealing with coding. Or seperate sequences can be prepared for startup, resume, sleep, and much more if neccessary.

I figured out that IRserver was hijacking control of the driver after sleep. I didn't need to use the program so I uninstalled it...now the USB-UIRT works great. Now if I can just figure out a one button sleep command in Mediaportal, I will be gold. I suppose I could always use event ghost for that.
