No, you are doing nothing wrong; you just have to run software that supports using the remote. Windows Media Center (alas, Microsoft removed it from Windows 10 ) supported using a remote. There are other products - like XBMC and its derivatives - that can also work with a remote.
Hope this helps,
thank you for your response. I marked Pearson's answer as helpful since it was reasonable, although he did not differentiate between Windows Media Center and Windows Media Player. WMC is not available in Windows 10 anymore and of course the issue with non-working IR with WMP still continues. There shouldn't be an issue, since Microsoft's own RC's like the xbox universal remote worked fine within these applications. In other words, WMP does support beeing controlled by RCs.
If there is an official answer by Intel about this topic, then I would glady like to know about it.
Thank you for the information.
I agree on the fact that you need to have a software that supports using the remote; otherwise, the supported options for the remote will be limited, the software you choose will help to handshake the signal between the remote and the operating system.
