Hey, I just got a Hauppauge WinTV-PVR 150 tv tuner and remote control the other day and I have been trying to get girder to work so I can use my remote control to control other programs on my computer. I have tried girder 3.2.9, 3.3, and 4.0 with the Hauppauge IR plugins that are offered on the website, but all attempts have failed. For every version I get an error saying plugin open failed. I tried the WinTV plugin also but I get this error "This function requires a video capture device based on the Brooktree (Conexant)BT848(A), BT849, or BT878 Chip. None could be found. Are you sure you have one?" I'm guessing that by that error my card is not compatable with that plugin. I mainly want to get the IR plugins to work. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
