I bought the USBUIRT from www.usbuirt.com
and true to it's claim it did plug and pray install perfectly fine into my 0710 Core/Hybrid. But for the life of me I can't get any remote I have to work with it. I don't have a Microsoft MCE remote, which I have read here on the forums works well with it. I do have a couple dishnetwork universal remotes that I used with my dish receiver, and an assortment of others that were just laying around. I go to the admin tool - advanced - media directors - and add the remotes in there using the device templates built in to 0710, but there really isn't an exact match for what I got. I reload the router and go to LCME, press buttons, watch the red light blink on the UIRT, but nothing happens. WTF?
So should I spend MORE money and get a MS MCE remote, or can someone tell me how I would get one from my existing stash to work. I don't know if this has anything to do with it, but when I cat /etc/hardware.conf and lircd.conf there isn't any configuration info in it. Are these files used with USBUIRT?
