I really like waking up feature on my MCE-compatible remote (It's not true MCE remote - works only through General HID). However, now I got Harmony One and problem is that I'm now limited to number of buttons on MCE remote. It would be cool if I could add menu commands that would send custom IR codes. However, receiver only supports IR signal from MCE remote and any custom driver I have tried failed.

So now I'm looking for an universal IR receiver that could receive any code harmony sends. However, I think by doing that, I would loose waking up feature (waking up PC from sleep via power button on remote).

So, is there an universal IR receiver that can also wake up PC from sleep when you press a power key on the remote?

    Every MCE-Receiver should do this. I'm using the Harmony with original MCE-Receiver from Microsoft and I can wake up my HTPC from sleep.

    Yes, but then I'm limited to MCE-remote buttons only. And with harmony, I could send a lot more commands with its touch screen.

    It's not a hardware limitation it's a software limitation. The mce receiver can learn IR codes for just about any remote, therefore it can receive practically an unlimited number of different IR codes from your harmony.

    So, then its a registry settings or something that determines which IR code will wake up PC?

    If you want your harmony to wake up your PC using your MCE IR receiver, then just set the harmony to learn the MCE power ir code.

    Ok, got it.

    Thanks for your answers!

    @DoXer I know about that. But my main concern was that I needed custom drivers to receive non-MCE commands from receiver which would break wake functionality.
