Tried everything with this but it just will not initialize even though windows 7 automatically installed the transceiver driver and the remote works else wise. I have tried it on 2 windows 7 32bit systems now.

The transceiver model number is IR606/Q which apparently is made by MATA? Anyways it installs with the normal driver from what I can tell which is eHome Infrared Receiver (USBCIR).

    Can you show me what it installs itself as in device manager ? The plugin, I've only tested on real Microsoft MCE receivers.

    Oh, 1 more thing to add. It won't work on a guest account, you need to be admin, or run it as admin to work. Just how microsoft designed it .. sadly.

    I was able to manually install the (Microsoft MCE Remote - Vista/Win7) and start the service, logs any buttons I hit on the remote properly.

    k, it seems very much like it should work. I had a quick google of the hardware online, looks like a pretty neat MCE clone. If i send you a debug build, can u test it ?
