Bell 4100 with Media Center

I have a Vista Computer that I was using for a media center with a FTA receiver. I was using a Hauppauge tuner card and a Microsoft IR with Microsoft remote. I ran this for over a year with no problems.

I just replaced the FTA receiver with a Bell 4100 and when I change the channels using the Microsoft remote the channels do not change on the Bell receiver. I tried the IR in different places on the receiver already with no luck.

Can anyone tell me what I should do?

Did you rerun the setup for Media Center where it sets up your video sources?

I went back through the set up process and now it works. It turns out that the computer need to learn the Bell remote and the IR was too fast, so slowing it down to medium made it work. Thanks for your help.
