View Full Version : Look at this- InfraRed Sensor Cable attached to Card?

August 2nd, 2003, 02:21 PM
Hey Fellas,

I would really appreciate all of your input and help - ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING!

I have an Aimslab VideoHighway Xtreme98 Deluxe Card. Now the Company, Aimslab, is out of business, so they don't have a website, software updates, drivers, etc.

Now, because I have the "Deluxe" version of the card, it comes with a remote control and an InfraRed sensor cable (the other end looks like an audio jack and plugs into the back of the PCI TV Tuner Card).

The problem is that I can't get it to work in Windows XP. Everything else works (Radio FM, TV Tuner, S-Video, etc.) in Windows XP, except the remote control function of this card. If any of you have any suggestions, guides, programs, websites, experience, drivers, updates, etc. please feel free to contribute. :)

Here is a picture of the card:
