John Im not sure im understanding you correctly. The problem I appeared to be having was that my set top box remote was not being recognised by windows MCE during the set up process. I followed the on-screen instructions (hold button 0 etc) but nothing happened. The windows compatible remote is working fine with Windows 7 and is controlling all the other Media centre functions. I am able to toggle though videos, music etc. There is no issue with drivers
Here is a picture of the (working) remote:
Maybe I didnt explain the problem properly. I am stuck on setting up the tv signal because when Windows identifies my set top box it requires that I configure the set top box remote. This is where I am stuck. I dont have a blaster - just a control and reciever - so Im not sure if this is where I am going wrong.
Here is a picture of the Eurovox remote:
I can view tv through MCE and control recording functions etc with the Windows compatible remote if I trick MCE by telling it I dont have a set box and use an antenna. It then finds the rf signal and completes tv set up without requirIng remote set-up. This is what I want to do - except with the rca/scart cable which is better quality than the old rf wire. Im really not bothered about changing channels on my set top box with my windows remote. Im happy using two seperate remotes - I just want Windows to display the signal it has dicovered without going through setting up a set top box remote it cant seem to find.
Cheers for your help.
