OK- so I went and fetched this pig from the closet. It was lost for a while.
Looks like it might fit the bill. But I need a couple things to make it work.
First- I need an IR blaster. I had one from a Rosewill remote but I gave it to my brother with the remote. It was clunky with dual wires.
I would prefer something neater that just plugs into USB.
What is a good way to get remote control signal to my HTPC using URC MX-900 above ???
I have Asrock Motherboard. I thought Asrock made a MFG solution ? Otherwise I would need a dongle type IR thing for the HTPC and applicable software. I would like something that can work with both XBMC and Mediabrowser.
Advice on getting the signal from the remote to my HTPC ????
I appear to have all the parts except for one.
I am missing the RF part.
and all I have is a cut wire that feeds it.
So... I think I am screwed. Otherwise this might work for me at least to see if I want to spend up on an MX980 or MX1200
If I don't like this MX900 then I can probably go another route.
I just need to get it working.
I have the software. That won't be a problem. But obtaining a RF base station might be.
Thoughts? Advice ?
