I use a Harmony one IR remote to control and a Hauppauge USB receiver, and my wife is getting frustrated with this not working
My first problem is powering on and off. Too often this gets out of sync and turns the PC off when I try to turn it on. I have looked everywhere to find a way of sending discrete power on and off commands and have not found away of solving this. Does anybody know of a way of sending discrete on of commands froma Harmony remote to a Hauppauge IR receiver?
Is there another receiver that has discrete on of IR codes that works better?
Secondly on the topic of remotes I have been setting up a WMC PC for my dad however he wants a remote to work from 2 rooms. He has a Harmony universal remote already. Is the best way to do this getting an IR repeater? Is there not any good bluetooth remotes out there at a decent price. The only thing I have found so far is the Harmony 900, which seems a bit pricey at $400.
Any suggestions of IR repeaters you can get hold of easily and know are good would also be appreciated. (NZ local or easily obtainable on internet eg ebay)
Any good suggestions or links to good discussions that I may have missed would be much appreciated. Thanks !!!
