Stettin Posted December 29, 2014 Report Share Posted December 29, 2014 I had just about everything working right on my HTPC using a Tivo Liquid PC IR receiver (sold by Nero several years ago). Unfortunately My volume down button on my AVR was the same IR signal as Mute on the PC. I had a workaround working OK with LM Remote Keymap to intercept the mute and bypass it, but recently that stopped working when my HTPC went into suspend mode. I was in the market for one of those HP IR receivers commonly used for Harmony remotes to connect with, when I saw this product. I figured it was worth the extra cost for the increased functionality. I don't know if I made the right decision though. Out of the box NOTHING worked right for Windows Media Center. I disconnected my old IR receiver and figured based on the product description that I could just use any remote to do custom commands. This seemed to work somewhat for arrow keys and enter, but none of the play, pause, stop, skip forward/backward, rewind/fast forward ever worked. I tried upgrading to the latest firmware and that didn't solve the issue. I thought maybe my Harmony remote wasn't working right, so tried my AVR remote buttons and the old Tivo Remote and have the same issue. I have tried using the WMC profile (mapping the functions to remote buttons) and none of them work. If I try the Full Keyboard (mapping the manual keyboard shortcuts) profile, something as simple as pausing works oddly. Here is an eventghost log of two "pause" (ctrl+p) mapping pushes Click Ctrl, then P, pressed the button on my remote -- appears to record OK. First push: Keyboard.LShift Keyboard.LShift+LAlt Keyboard.LShift+RShift+LAlt Keyboard.LShift+RShift+LAlt+RAlt Keyboard.RShift+LAlt+RAlt Keyboard.RShift+RAlt Keyboard.RAlt Second push: Keyboard.LCtrl Keyboard.LCtrl+P Keyboard.P This is after clearing the entire configuration. Things like numbers, arrow keys, spaces seem to work OK. Anything more complicated and it doesn't seem to work. I also need to get the skip forward and skip backward working (not the fast forward/backward) or else this unit will have to be returned. I'm not sure exactly what information you guys need to help me out on this. I've went from a minor annoyance when waking my pc from suspend, to something that barely works at all. Remotes tried: Harmony One RX-V867 Yamaha remote Nero LiquidTV (Tivo remote) I'm running the latest GUI and forced firmware upgrade. Could I have a defective unit?
