right thats what i thought, so i should be able to set up a scenario now where the usbuirt changes the channel on my cable box when i use the mythtv channel browser. Rodercot was right though for some reason the usbuirt would not install itself until i uninstalled the dongle. So now my question is how do i set up scenarios? Let me tell you what i do understand. I understand how to set all the inputs and properties for a device then use the connection wizard to tell linuxmce how to control my equipment, except for the cable box throught the pvr part, thats confusing the crap out of me. I understand if i can't get the learning mode to work that i need to get the windows app and record the codes i need and manually install them into ir properties. What i don't get is the scenarios maybe someone can explain this to me, i am basically using the same setup as the demo video only i have no rs232 connection on my tuner. I do have the codes and remote for it though. Whenever i try and control anything with the usbuirti get nothing, i think i have the right codes, well actually im not sure at all, i think i got the learning mode to work but not 100% sure. Ehh, im confusing myself, any explanations would be appreciated.
