Hello, I am now the new owner of a Windows 7 PC. I have a Pinnacle 800i Tuner card installed and have Verizon FIOS. I have discovered that I need a STB to make the tuner card work cause of the FIOS. OK, I can deal with that. So I have my tuner card, STB and I try activating the TV option in WMC7. I get stalled at the "IR Receiver not located" screen. OK, so I start researching IR receivers all to find out there are receivers, transmitters and blasters. What exactly am I supppsed to get? There is a IR port on the back of the STB box which is a QIP2500-3.
Just a note, the Pinnacle 800i came with an IR receiver that plugs into the card, but I am assuming WMC7 see's the STB not the tuner card and that is why it is asking for another IR receiver. Correct?
