    Hi all. I've been browsing and searching this board for anything that would
    help. I've tried unistalling and reinstalling the IR receiver, replacing the
    batteries, shorting the remote, Tweak MCE, etc...and nothing works. I have a
    RC6 remote that came with the computer that used to work. I had a decoder
    error that i fixed from the info i found here(don't really remember how i did
    it. it involved typing a command from the CMD prompt to re-register something
    within MCE), but now my remote doesn't work. The IR receiver blinks red when
    i press a button on the remote, its just that nothing happens. None of the
    button makes the computer respond. Please help, i'm extremely frustrated.

  2. If you open Notepad and press the numbers on the remote, do any of them show
    up in Notepad?
