A starting point is all I'm going to offer on this because everyone's situation is unique and without actually being there it's just not realistic to try and offer help.
So, I'll just point you to the program EventGhost and you can take it from there.
I have a hp m#d5200t pavilion with windows vista home premium. I purchased remote control m#5070-2583 and IR receiver m#467496-ZH1 from hp parts and came with no directions.
I followed the directions in my hp user guide but unsuccessful. I was not able to make the device manager under serial bus controllers recognize the IR reciever. The procedure they describe does not work. This is the first time I have tried to usr a remote control unit with my computer.
The IR receiver came with a red male jack which I plugged into the red outlet in rear of computer. I'm assuming this is the correct outlet.
According the hp on the web there is no documentation available which describes this set up procedure.
Can anyone assist me?
