Hauppauge 2250 and Rogers 4250HD cable box…
I have a Hauppauge 2250 TV Tuner and a Rogers 4250HD cable box.
If I try and use the IR Blaster to control the cable box and use the WinTV Blaster configuration to configure and learn the remote it goes through the process of holding 1 button down a couple times but eventually comes up with the message “Remote does not support toggle bit – Retry learning!1”
I was originally using the supplied IR baster from Hauppauge but when I called there support they shipped me a USB IR blaster cable to use but I am getting the same result. When I called them back they just say it doesn’t work with that cable box.
I have also tried to use and setup Windows7 media centre to control the 4250 cable box unsuccessfully.
I realize that I don’t need to control the 4250HD with the 2250 but I was considering purchasing a colossus card or Hauppauge HD PVR to record HD but those devices would need to control the 4250 cable box which is what I am trying to prove can be done with the 2250 which should be the same.
Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated. Maybe there is another product I should use with my HTPC and the 4250 to record HD.
