Im renovating a house we have just bought and we have had to move in even though its still a building site bar two bedrooms and two bathrooms. I have an MCE machine built and up and running with just the basics. I cant get the NTL Digital set-top box connected so am running just with the analogue connection which is missing channels, has duplicates, poor reception etc. Basically I need to get it up and running properly with the digital and epg etc to keep the other half happy I get an IR Hardware Not Detected error when trying to setup the STB. I have 2 IR blasters connected to the MCE remote IR receiver. Do I need to stick one of these to the NTL STB, where? I have the RGB scart from my NTL STB going into a RGB to svideo converter box (Maplins) and the svideo from this going to the PVR500MCE card in my MCE machine. I get the error even when connecting directly via composite (I know this may not be relevant but am including in case it impacts something). Apologies if this has already been covered as I didnt know what to search for (searching on the error message didnt get any hits) and its an OEM copy so I have no manual. Itd be great to get this setup tonight to keep my girlfriend happy so any advice is much appreciated, otherwise itll be the couch for me hang on a minute, we dont even have a couch yet!
