I have a NUC5i5RYB and I installed the Generic HID plugin, but I can't get it to respond. In my device manager I see "Nuvoton SIO CIR DEvice Driver" so I believe I have the IR driver installed ok. Not sure what you mean by "the 3rd option down" since mine may be different. I have 7 in total, the first four are as follows (all 4 show Manufacturer as Vendor ID 1118):
@hidserv.inf,%hid_device_system_consumer%,HID-compliant consumer control device
Then I have 6 lines named "USB Receiver" with a manufacturer "Logitech". Each of the 10 lines shows connected as "Yes".
I've unchecked the Trigger Enduring and checked the Use raw Data boxes.
I "assume" the IR receiver is on the front of the NUC next to the headphone jack, but none of my remotes trigger an event in EG.
Would you please advise me with the issue you are getting related to the IR?
The behavior of the device while trying to use the remote would be good.
My issue is that I would like to be able to receive IR signals from remote controls via the NUC and process them using EventGhost. I have purchased a USB-UIRT device and EventGhost has a plugin for it, and I can receive IR signals successfully from it. I was hoping to be able to do the same with the native IR capability of the NUC so that I could have a receiver in two rooms. EventGhost does have a plugin for Generic IR as described earlier in this post. I installed it but was unable to have EventGhost acknowledge any IR transmissions received by the NUC. I do not have a Media Center remote available, but I do have a Dish, Samsung, and several other A/V component remote controls that I have tried. None of them have any effect on the NUC IR that I can see.
I'm wondering if it's because I'm running Windows 7 Pro instead of 8 on the NUC? Last week I was trying unsuccessfully to get my new Logitech K830 keyboard to connect to the NUC with Bluetooth. Windows 8 supports the required "Smart Bluetooth" that the keyboard uses, but some hardware suppliers have provided Windows 7 drivers to do that function. Evidently the NUC does not have that feature available with Windows 7. Maybe the same is true for IR?
Let me perform some tests for this, please access the link below and follow the instructions, this is to get your system information for me to try to replicate the issue.
Also, the exact model of the Controllers used would help me.
I would really think a company the size of Intel could supply some documentation for their new NUC devices. Here's my SIU report. I've tried several remote controls (Dish Network 5.0IR and 5.2IR, Samsung BN59-01223A, Epson 150015000, among others) but get no response from EventGhost with the Generic HID plugin.
1. Do I need an MCE remote?
2, Is Windows 7 the problem?
3. Is there some other utility that I can use to verify the functioning of the NUC's IR capability?

Thank you for the information provided.
I will be performing the tests mentioned before.
I will be providing you with my outcome on this.
Hi guys, fighting with same issue on BOXNUC5I3RYH (Windows 10 Home)
Here is what I see in devices management:
And here is what I see while I trying add Generic HID to EventGhost:
I have tried all "HID-compilant ... Vendor ID 1118" devices with raw data with no success.
May you please provide full device name to choose?
BTW: Is there any other way to just check is IR retrieving signals from remote without complex programs and configurations (something which will simple try to catch all and just show if something happen)
Here is my outcome with the tests performed.
Hardware used: Intel® NUC Kit NUC5i5RYK
4 GB of RAM
m.2 drive 80GB
Windows 7* 64-bit pro
Keyboard: Logitech k810
What I did:
-Fresh install of Windows 7* 64-bit pro
-Installed chipset driver
-Installed Bluetooth driver
-Installed wireless adapter driver
-Installed Infrared: Nuvoton
After doing this, I paired the Bluetooth keyboard to the system (procedure could change from different vendors).
* Control panel> printers and devices> add device> the keyboard was recognized and configured.
I installed EventGhost software and added keyboard login, it recognized the entries from Bluetooth keyboard.
Here you can check some screenshot of the tests.
I'm sorry I haven't logged into this forum recently but I didnt see all the replies before, but just to be clear:
I have tested this and have confirmed it to work on the following NUCs (in windows 7):
The script attached to this post is my own. I use it to control Plex (OpenPHT) as well as Windows Media Center. It can also work with Kodi, you just have to remap a few keys. If you use this script, you do NOT have to follow the instructions I originally posted above. The script will take care of everything. To use this script, please follow this procedure:
1. install eventghost.
2. open the script called: EventGhost script for plex and kodi for use with intel NUC.xml
3. Under "configuration tree/Autostart" in the left window. click on the "Plugin HID: generic human interface" in the top right list of active devices and right click to "configure item":
4. Under "settings" select "@input.iinfo,%hid_device%;HID-compliant device" from "Device Name" list.
5. start pushing buttons to make sure remote IR signals are being received (although everything on the script should work as is, but verify and change if necessary)
**xbmc commands seem to only work in XBMC. keyboard commands work with Plex / OpenHT.
a = audio track toggle for plex / openHT
s = subtitle track toggle for plex / openHT
c = context menu for both kodi and plex / openHT
m = on screen full menu for plex / openHT
hope that helps
Really appreciate your input on this Ou8thisSN!
I hope peers can test this out and provide with some feedback.
