HP PC having Issue with IR Emitter - help!

Hi everyone,

I have an HP PC that I use as a HTPC (mainly for watching stored videos, listening to MP3s and watching some live TV through Media Center). My equipment is all set up out of line of sight so I use a Speakercraft IR Repeater kit (IRC 3.0). The IR emitters work perfectly with all of my equipment except the Media Center PC. I use a Harmony 880 remote which if pointed directly at the HTPC, works perfectly. The computer just doesn;t seem to recognize commands sent through the IR emitter.

Any suggesstions? I have not been able to find a resolution to this problem no matter how many ppl I ask.

The Media Center PC is an HP M9047C.

Please let me know if you have any suggestions.

My other equipment is a 42" Panasonic Plasma, a Yamaha RXV2400 Receiver and I am connected to Rogers Cable using an HD PVR.

what version of Media Center do you have and have all of the avail rollups been applied?

I found that it doesn't always recognize all stb's out-of-the-box - especially the newer ones...

How did it respond during the stb mini-setup wizard? Not at all?
