The PVR comes with a USB-connected media remote with two blaster ports. I have configured IR Server to do the blasting from MP and, in testing, got it to turn off/on my TV, but i cannot get the STB to recieve any commands.
IR server appears to capture the commands from the remote without issue, but blasting back is a problem. From my investigative covering and directional remote pointing, I have determined that the IR reciever on the STB appears to be behind the power button, but when I stick the blaster bug to it, it does not work.
I have come to two conclusions:
1) The capturing of the remote codes is not working correctly
2) The IR reciever and bug are just not close enough for the STB to receive the codes.
Has anyone got an IR server configuration for this STB or had a go at blasting this one. I am tempted to put the front cover off and get the reciever/sender right up and snuggly, but Sky may disapprove :)
