i'm running windows 7 ultimate 64 bit and i'm trying to setup my tv signal on the windows media center.

i have an mce remote and transceiver listed on the device manager as "microsoft ehome infrared transceiver".

when i run windows media center i can actually use it to operate but during tv setup process i get an error saying "windows media center cannot detect yor ir receiver. make sure that your ir receiver is connected and then select try again".
"ir hardware not detected".

this is so weird because as i stated before i can actually use the remote whitin the windows media center but for some reason it reports it can't be detected so i can't get pass this problem and continue setting up my tv.

what can i do ?

anyone ever stumbled upon an error like this ?

Update the device driver to the latest version and involve your IR receiver manufacturer to solve the problem.

try to download the latest driver from manufacturer's website, install it and try!
Manufacturer's driver are more accurate than windows in built drivers!

Hope it helps!
