Windows 7: Setting up remote problem

06 Aug 2009   #11


OK, when you started talking about the different remotes I became confused of your issue. I basically read too much into the post about the remotes and confused myself lol. No fault on your part whatsoever.

Unfortunately, I don't have a set top box, and I cannot help much in any other way - but I hope someone will come along who has that experience and be able to tell you how to go about it.

hi murphio,

The only solution I can offer you will cost some money, but not too much, and it's a great addition to your Mediacenter.

My advise is to buy a Logitech Harmony 525 or higher.

It can connect to an online database with tens of thousands of devices.

And you can program macros on it.

That means you push 1 button and it manipulates multiple devices.

It's fully compatible with the MS remote so you don't need to use another receiver for your MCE.

If you want more info, send me a personal message
