Hello,

 

I just installed MBC over the weekend and it seems to work OK, so I thought I'd try MBT. The only significant problem I've had is that my Harmony 640 remote, which is setup to work with MBC does not work in MBT.

 

I have a Hauppauge WinTV HVR-1850 (Model 85xxx, Combo ATSC/QAM, 888 DIF) and I'm using the IR receiver and driver that came with that.

 

When I install MBT, the remote stops working in both MBC and MBT, if I "Restart IR" (a Hauppauge utility) the remote then works in MBC, but still not in MBT. This is true even if I run both MBC and MBT at the same time, switching between them, the remote works in MBC but not in MBT.

 

Any ideas?

 

I've attached my most recent MBT log, if that will help.

 

Thank you.

When you say doesn't work... Do you mean doesn't work at all, or certain buttons work but others don't?

Does not work at all. Works perfectly in WMC and MBC, zero in MBT.

What do you have your remote setup for in the harmony config?  I know I had to set mine to windows media center SE.  I've had a one, 900, and 650 that all worked fine with mbc and mbt.

It's configured to run a WMC PC, my Toshiba TV and my 5.1 receiver, nothing special as far as that goes, but I haven't looked at it in detail since I set it up. I'll take a look at the setup and mess around with it tonight. Maybe just wiping it and starting over will work.

Yeah do what wraslor suggested and set up the activity to include windows media center SE as one of the devices to give you more control over your pc.  Check to see what the "customize buttons" are set for in the activity making sure they're set for media center pc

Figured it out. For whatever reason I had this thing installed and running at start up:

 

IR Remote control application

download.pngIR Remote control version 28015

Remote control applet for use with WinTV 7. After you run this applet, an icon will appear in your Windows device tray showing that the Hauppauge remote control is active.

Name: ir32_28015.exe
Name: 442KB
Name: 2/3/2010

 

 

Which is found on the "Accessories" tab of this page:

http://www.hauppauge...ort_hvr1800.htm

 

Exiting that fixed my problem.

 

Thank you for time and responses.

@spriggig

 

We now have native Hauppauge support available for testing in the Emby Server beta:

Thanks.
