I couldn't work out my remote, now i suspect it's the receiver's problem. I notice there are Three Led on the stick. when it works, i only can see two are on. one is blue and the other is green, the last one is dark. not sure if this means the receiver function of the stick is broken. Despite this, it works perfectly to get the freeview HD channels.

I have 2 LEDs and one IR receiver on my 4 day old HVR900. Do you have the hauppauge IR software loaded?

Hi guys,

 I have the same problem as simouse. I run the software on a laptop, with XP pro OS.
The hardware goes (more or less) smooth, except for the remote control.
From what I gather the third "led" is an ir sensor. Is it expected to blink or something when it
receives a signal from the remote??
Simouse did you succeed in having the remote work?

I have also a software problem (I think). The epg function does weird things. It apparently sweeps the available
frequencies, and it takes a reasonable time (a few minutes) to get to 100%. After that it gets somewhat stuck,
and grinds on forever. I never succeeded in getting an epg page.

Thanks for any hint
