Those two are definitely incompatible. So you must use the matching dongle that came with each remote. But as I said, you can continue to use both simultaneously if you want. I found that the one on the left would wake my PC reliably, but the one on the right would not. So I also used both for years.
The thing I like about the old Ortek (the one on the left) is the integrated mouse. If you prefer your old remote, I have a couple like new that you could have for the price of shipping if you want ($4 or so). I only use the dongles since I have universal remotes. So either you take them or my wife throws them out. PM me if interested.
for the info on these remotes, it's just what I was looking for. If there were a "thumbs up" smilie, I'd be putting it right here.
It'd be a shame to throw out perfectly good remotes, but wife is very happy with the HP model as the buttons are bigger and easier to find in the semi-darkness. Thanks for the offer, though. Hope they find a good home.
I updated the data Sunday, before the super bowl. It started recording the super bowl. When I went to start watching the super bowl. After 30seconds,the screen blanked out. Then I got a message drivers were missing for video play back. Still happening now I`m not getting update my Rovi warning now. Any ideas to what happened. I haven't had any problems with this setup in 7 years. Any help would be welcomed. Thanks in advance.Dennis
Does anyone else think the listings have improved since the guide data hiccup was fixed? Fewer teams TBA for college basketball for example?
I'll have to admit, after the last few "hiccups" the guide data seems to be a little better with ROVI. Double recordings are down, and details are a hair bit better. Besides the "No data" issues, I have not missed a recording in a while due to bad data, so I would say things are getting better.
Maybe it's because of TIVO users complaining (paying customers) but, if it gets better and more stable, I am all good with it.
But these...every 2 month 1-2 days with out data is starting to get to me.

I switched to a silicon dust prime and windows media center, comcast cable card and have problems with channels.
The SD shows all my channels, and I can use the SD viewer to watch them but media center can not find 5 channels.
I looked at adding channels like 1220 TBS but it requires a signal of _ _._
I looked and can't find anything that shows these types of numbers for the missing channels.
Is there a list of conversions to get the media center to use the missing channels?
I picked up a HP Z230 core 5 with Windows 7 pro. Dropped in a 9500 NVidia card for 1080 play back.
I have HD home run prime and can't get my HBO channels. WMC said it's not digital ready to display it and tells me to activate Windows, it is active . What am I missing? Also the sound will not play though HDMI and when I go to the NVidia setup it shows my Samsung but will not show up in windows.
- Make sure cable card is properly activated with cable company. Without that, HBO will never work.
- Run Digital Cable Advisor until it passes. If you can't get it to pass, there is a utility to override it http://rricketts.com/digital-cable-a...stry-override/
- Sound card needs to be set up to run in Exclusive mode.
- Confirm Windows is really activated. "Active" and "Activated" are not the same thing.
