I just purchased a Hauppauge WinTV-PVR-150MCE card to use with Vista (wanted a new tuner card that MCE would recognize). Well everything is fine until the end of the setup process in Vista Media Center when it gives me a IR Hardware not detected error message. This sounds like windows wants a IR connection between my Direct Tv Receiver and my new tv tuner card. How do I go about completing this setup, media center won't let me finish the setup until this is resolved. I have a fairly new Direct Tv receiver and see no place to hook up a IR cable anywhere.
I happened to find some actual vista drivers for this capture card and i'm able to watch/record tv now via media center. The only thing i'm having trouble with is controlling my direct tv receiver with the MCE remote. Can anyone help with this?
