    I am a self-proclaimed moron when it comes to computers, so anyone that can
    help would be greatly appreciated!
    I am trying to set up my tv on the Media Center but I have Dish Network and
    the set top box is in the basement and controls 2 rooms. So, I can't hook up
    the IR cable. When I tell the computer I don't have a remote, it has me
    check all 33 codes to see if the MC remote will change the channel. None of
    those worked! I called Gateway to get help but they told me to call a number
    that would charge $2.95 per MINUTE! No Way! If anyone can help, I would
    really appreciate it!! Thanks!

    Get an IR remote kit at you local Radio Shack. They should show you how to
    connect it.
