I bought an infrared reciever from ebuyer (http://www.ebuyer.com/customer/products/index.html?rb=2638606997&action=c2hvd19wcm9kdWN0X292ZXJ2aWV3&product_uid=47754) and it arrived yesterday. I wanted to make a remote for my pc so when im watching all my dvds and videos i dont have to get up to control it all. The infrared is a usb one and i was told that the program girder was the only one that supported it so ive downloaded that. The problem is that it doesnt detect the remote signal. I have installed the infrared and girder, and ive also tried a bunch of different plugins but it still doesnt work. At the bottom the lamp is green saying everything is ok but to the left of that it says “no devices are detected”. If anyone knows of any plugin or config to use please let me know.
Also if there is an alternate prog other than girder which supports usb infrared will try that too. All help is greatly appreciated, thx
