    I can not setup the Satellite box with MCE 2005: MCE 2005 does not want to
    learn the IR signal from the set-top box remote. It was doing that fine with

    Is this an open bug in MCE 2005?

    Hi Andy,

    thanks for your reply.

    In the meantime I have found the root cause for my problem. It seems to be
    that the different sources of light (fluorescent lamp, daylight) interfere
    with the signal of the RC, although I hold the RC very close to the receiver
    and the batteries of the RC were brand new.

    Now we have in the middle of the night, I have switched of the light in my
    office and now it works.
