Im using an HTPC to change the sky channels via an IR Blaster (yeah yeah I know) but the damn thing just won't work for 3 digit channels ie: all the Olympic channels! It's only the first digit of any 3-digit combination that isn't working but it fine with 2-digit channels
I've tried editing the STBCode registry entry in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Media Center\Service\Video\Tuners and have tried all sorts of different values for key duration and key interval and made sure the digit number is set to 3 but none work. The annoying thing is it was working most of the time a few days ago but now nothing even on the same settings.
I've also tried fiddling the position of the IR blaster and have it taped to the stb. It's definitely in the right position as the other two digits work fine.
Any ideas on other stuff to try? Any ideas why it would have worked sometimes the other day but not now even with identical setup? The blaster flashes 3 times but seems to flash too early on the first digit for the stb to recognise and it only sees the second 2...
