Hi there,

I'm contemplating a switch to Telus Optik TV, and am wondering if anyone has successfully integrated the non-PVR Optik box with Windows 7 Media Centre. It looks to have component outputs that will work with the Hauppage HDPVR box that I have, which is good, and the guide setup does have Telus Optik TV as an option for my area, but I am mainly wondering about the IR blaster. I've seen other threads about remote extenders not working with the Optik box and thus am not sure if the Microsoft remote receiver/IR blaster will control the Optik set top box.

Anyone had experience with this?

Thanks in advance..
Milo

Sorry to bring this back from the dead, but did you ever get this to work? I plan on doing the same thing shortly... Only trouble is you'll only be able to watch/record one show at once. :( Wish they'd just enable the mediaroom plugin required to get Optik natively under W7MC!
