hi to all,

i currently have a htpc which consists of a zalman hd160 powercinema and a hauppauge hvr 3000 satellite tuner and two remotes the one supplied with my case and a new logitech harmony one (i cant find the hauppauge one), my problem is as follows, i cannot get any remotes to fully interact with powercinema i can only use the arrow keys for navigating menus and thats it i cannot get the remote to do anything else like swith channels or pause rewind etc, i think the solution lies in altering the irremote.ini file but ill be buggered if i know how to do it properly, ive had a play about and it didnt change a single thing.

any help of guidence would be really appreciated

thanks guys

irremote.ini is the file for the hauppauge remote to control via the ir sensor plugged into your HVR3000.  So the computer will respond to the hauppauge commands.  Try loading the Hauppauge PVR codes on to your Harmony from the website, then you may need to point the ini file at the exe for Powercinema.

the ir sensor is built into the zalman case front not the hvr3000, do i need to plug the sensor into the hvr300, im currently using irtrans that came with the case, the zalman remote will control media centre and the pc n stuff but not powercinema, so do u think the sensor needs plugging into the car instead?

irremote.ini is the file that tells the system to look at the the ir sensor plugged into your hauppauge card. It is what links the hauppauge remote into your system.  At the moment I have both a MCE USB ir sensor and the hauppauge ir sensor connected at the same time.  They coexist happily so I don't see any harm in you trying to plug the second (hauppauge) sensor into your HVR-3000.  Someone with some experience of irtrans may have a different opinion about any conflict so I will defer to them.
As I said in the post further up the harmony library has the hauppauge codes in it but from memory the are under the PVR list.  So load it on your your harmony as a device and give it a crack.  You can always cover the case sensor while you try it.

The case ir sensor is obviously working if it can operate MCE and the computer.  Is it possible to set up a hot key on the remote to start powercinema?  I did have have a play with powercinema when I first got my HVR-2200 but found it clunky and limiting so have stuck with MediaPortal which in my opinion is far more flexible and usable, although occasionally buggy.  Still its a hard road to find the perfect HTPC......
