    OK, I have a Fujitsu Siemens Scaleo C that I bought at ebay a while ago, thought it would be a nice first computer for my 6-year old daughter. Since we have a server running mediaportal here in our house off course she should have a mediaportal client on her computer.
    With a lot of tweaking i've now got almost everything on this little machine to work with mediaportal, only thing missing now is a remote, the original one was not included when i bought it.
    Anyway
    This machine has a built in IR receiver that identifies itself as VID: 0419 PID: 0001. The IR sensors are connected to a chip from Cypress, CY7C63001. I havent found any drivers at all for this receiver but windows identifies it as a USB HID. The LED indication on the front panel blinks when the driver is loaded and it receives signal from any random remote.
    I have now been testing for several days with different MCE remotes to get this to work, using HID device/plugins in both Girder and IRSS just hangs the receiver and i have to restart the computer. tried various software i found on the internet to get some signal to come from the driver. When using some USB sniffer software i can get som initiation data from it when "re-plugging" it but nothing from pressing keys on the remotes.
    Does anyone know how the original remote to this system works?
