    MCE remote only works with usb sensor plugged in

    noxy12

      So with my new haswell i3 nuc, i am told that the ir should pick up the button presses of my windows remote control but it doesnt.. i am running win 8.1 enterprise edition and only when i plug in the sensor usb attachment that came with the remote some years back does it work..

       

      any ideas?

          Hey,

           

          In order to get the built-in IR receiver working you HAVE to get a certified (RC6 protocol) Media Center remote control.

          Other proprietary protocols remotes will not work ( you will have to use their included IR receiver).

           

          I am using Inteset INT-413 remote and it works great with Media Center and XBMC, but again, any certified remote will work without problems.
