    Good Day All,

    Just looking for help or to see if anyone else has had this problem. I
    have recently built a HTPC and wanted to avoid proprietary file types
    for my recorded files and so I went with the Beyond TV solution vice
    Media Center. The Company I bought the card from sold me a MCE kit
    however (long story),and as a result I have an IR blaster and Remote
    that appear workable, but not as easy as plug it in, follow wizard, and
    go. Basically the MCE remote works fine with Beyond TV, but the blaster
    is not recognised. I have to change channels with the cable box remote,
    as a result it won't record shows when I am away unless I set the
    channel first. Was wondering if anyone out there has had the same
    problem, solutions or some tips or advice.

    Here are the particulars of my setup:

    Hauppauge PVR 500 MCE Kit
    eHome remote and Transceiver (according to the device manager)
    Scientific Atlanta Explorer 3100 CAble box on Rogers Digital Cable

    The only potential solution I foresee is Girder, but want to avoid that
    route if possible.

    Thanks all,
