I have an Intel NUC with has a built in IR receiver. Shows up in Device Manager as Nuvoton SIO CIR Device Driver, and there's also Microsoft eHome Transceiver listed. It seems to work fine.
I'm simply wondering if anyone has profiles or tips for easy setup of Harmony with a PC, plus various HTPC software apps. I can't remember the general procedure for setup... whether I should load a remote profile and customize that or load an application profile and customize that.
I'm using DVDFab Media Player, MPC-HC, and occasionally VLC Media Player. I know there's a VLC profile. I also can't remember the remote profile for Media Center remote.
I started to just load commands onto the Harmony screen, learn those IR commands, and assign keyboard shortcuts. Seems like that could take some time.
If there's a better device to use from the Harmony database, please let me know.
I'm finally getting around to getting IntelliRemote back on my HTPC. It's been MIA for years since I've just been too lazy to get things configured right.
