USB IR reciever support

Post by TT_ZX » Tue Oct 07, 2008 10:11 am

Does someone have a list of USB (no serial port) IR receivers supported by minimyth? I have a Harmony remote that I will use, so the receiver is the important part. I don't mined purchasing the remote just to get a working receiver, but I'm on a tight budget. I'm currently using a wireless keyboard but it's a bit bulky.

USB IR reciever support

I use the microsoft MCE USB IR receiver.

It just worked on minimyth.

I use a harmony remote as well and just told Harmony that I had a microsoft MCE computer.

So it works for me with essentially no configuration.

It appears that this remote is no longer available. It's a shame because it is exactly what I was looking for. I'll keep an eye on my local auction site for a used one.
