Trying to help out a friend, but it's frustrating.
He has an HP Pavillion Elite HEP computer running win 7 media center. On the back, it has a Hauppauge HVR-1850 video card.
Connecting a Motorola cable box to the Analog in connection, speakers to the audio jack and he gave me a 2 headed IR cable - 1 short IR and 1 long IR that has a tiny jack that fits the IR jack on this card.
this is an example of the card:
He has the remote and that dual IR cable - looks like thats the right cable based on the picture (another amazon listing has an IR box that connects to the PC via USB. He doesn't have anythin like that with USBt, but this dual IR cable fits that IR jack on the card:
Then we go through the media center setup. it sees video on channel 3. THen it gets hung up at IR hardware not detected.
Googling this, it seems to be a common problem, but haven't found a fix.
In device manager, I see the consumer IR device is working correctly.
Any advice? do we need a USB IR device that he says he doesn't have?
He's got another remote: http://www5.pcmag.com/media/images/255525-hp-pavilion-elite-pc-hpe-510y-remote.jpg
