Troubles with Hauppage IR Blaster
I am currently in the process of setting up an HTPC and have gotten pretty far but I am stuck at trying to make my IR Blaster work. I currently have a Hauppage WinTV 2250 tuner connected to a Bell TV 4100 STB and analog cable. I have been able to scan in my analog cable channels and I can view the output of the Bell STB by manually switching to the S-Video input but I cannot, for the life of me, get the included IR Blaster to change channels on the Bell STB.
I have tired, as a test, to "learn" commands from my Shaw Cable box with success - I can turn the cable box on and off and change channels with ease but with it comes to the Bell 4100 BlastCfg.exe (the hauppage IR blaster program) says it "learns" the bell remote commands but then has no control over the STB.
I am running Windows Server 2008R2 as my OS and need to have this working in WinTV as I don't really want to go through the hassle of hack-installing Media Center into this OS.
I would greatly appreciate any suggestions you folks may have for me.
