  1. I see there are lots of nice Controller templates in Flirc 1.4.4. Could there be one added for PLEX as well, please?
  2. It cancels the whole setup, darnit.
  3. Hi Burke. Thanks for your message. I am on Windows 7, 64-bit, so sadly the drivers on the link you provided don't work. Any other ideas are appreciated.
  4. I tried it again last night, taking screenshots all along the way. There is no way to skip the IR setup ... Any further suggestions, anyone?
  5. Hi ixian. Thanks for your reply. I've looked carefully and there is no option to skip the IR step in Media Center setup. My setup is as follows: Hauppauge HVR-1850 internal tuner card (SD & HD tuners on one card) -- http://www.hauppauge.com/site/products/data_hvr1850.html Harmony 890 Remote (connected to the computer, and currently running my Beyond TV setup perfectly) -- http://www.logitech.com/en-us/support-downloads/downloads/universal-remotes/devices/374 SD is DirecTV (serial connection from the STB to the computer for changing channels) HD is OTA I own a Windows Vista MCE Remote & dongle, but it is not attached. Please let me know of any questions. I hope this helps to diagnose the issue I'm facing!
  6. Thanks for the reply, Jason. You answered my question -- "Windows media center wont detect flirc". Hopefully, one of the MCE users here will chime in with a solution... Or maybe the Microsoft guy will come through.
  7. Sorry I wasn't clear... MCE's configuration routine looks for an IR receiver to be plugged into the computer. Even with (what I believe is) a compatible IR dongle plugged in (and recognized by Windows), MCE does not recognize the IR during configuration, and I cannot continue. It's a well-known problem on the web (google "windows media center windows 7 doesn't find ir receiver"), but solutions for my configuration (Win 7, 64-bit) aren't there... I've got a friend who used to work at Microsoft and is friends with the MCE project lead. I'm going to reach out to him tomorrow and maybe -- hopefully -- get an authoritative answer. I guess my questions for this forum are these: 1. Has anyone else here encountered and (hopefully) overcome this issue? 2. Can FLIRC help solve this issue? I haven't tried it yet...
  8. I know this is a long shot... In my quest to find a wife-acceptable replacement for the long-in-the-tooth-and-no-longer-developed Beyond TV (which I have used happily since it was introduced), I've tried several other PVR solutions... Front-runner was SageTV until Google made it go bye-bye. Then I've been considering For The Record (4therecord.eu) along with MediaPortal with XBMC as the frontend, but have been slowed by the complexity of getting it all working together (guide schedules, commercial skipping, etc.)... I've been gnashing my teeth. Then I realized that my copy of Windows 7 (64-bit) came with a copy of Windows Media Center! I am embarassed that I've forgotten that it was there for so long. So, this past weekend, I tried to configure it but got stuck/stumped by the IR dongle that MCE did not detect. I've got a Vista MCE Remote with dongle that Windows recognizes, but not MCE. I know this is a long shot, but: 1. Does Flirc address this problem (or could it be made to)? 2. Does anyone know a way around this issue?
  9. Jason... I want to post a public "thank you" for what you did recently in my wife's name. Without making the details public, I want to let everyone know how much it touched us. To everyone... I know this post won't make sense to you. Just know that this developer -- this man -- is awesome.
  10. Thanks! Will check that out. I'm anticipating my Flirc to arrive any day now... Cannot wait.

  12. Going to try Flirc with this remote as soon as my Flirc arrives. Any suggestions?
