IR hardware not detected

Hello: I'm new to Windows Seven forums, thus I come seeking help. I using Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit (previously ran Vista Ultimate 64 bit), in configuring by WMC I recieve message "IR hardware not detected", however I can move forward or backward with RC6 controller. It is Microsoft's Media controller and receiver. In the device manager I find "eHome infrared receiver (USBCIR), Microsoft eHome Infrared transceiver and HID-Compliant consumer control device". All are in working order. During TV setup "select a working tv signal" I can see and hear the channel, but once I click next "IR hardware not detected" Also, I using windows 7 7100, help is needed. Thank you
