IR emitters on Microsoft MCE Remote Receiver
« on: December 08, 2005, 11:09:06 pm »
Can these work with pluto?

I've tried connecting them, and adding a IRTrans Embedded Transiever, without getting it to work.

Does anyone else know about this?

The remote comes with to outputs to ir, so it would be perfekt for controlling other devices with it. My dreambox for instance...

i didn't tried that and i don't know if it would work.
anyway if it does have ir outputs too we should get it to work.
at this time i don't think that we support this.

I'm happy to put my plutohome installation up for you guys to try when you have the time.

I have a hybrid and a md both with this MCE receiver. The hybrid has two connected ir-outputs, but the md only uses one.

Let me know if this would help :)

That's great :)

And this show, would there be any presentation of it?
And perhaps some pictures/videos?

As a future reseller, this would be great for advertising...

Hi Dan,

We have MCE receivers working on all our test cores and on two Hybrids. We would also like to get the emmitter side of these devices working so that we can use them to control IR enabled devices local to the MD they are attached to. I think in total we have about 10 MD's enabled with MCE receivers.

Presumably once the emmitters are working we will essentially be able to remotely control any compatible IR device from any MD.

So let us know if we can help in any way as well.

Merry Xmas to all by the way!

Andrew
