    I am honestly stumped...

    I have a HTPC [Evga 680i, Evga 8800GTS SC, Core2duoE6600, 4gb corsair XMS ddr2800 RAM, Silverstone case w/ imon LCD/IR reciever, xp MCE and Vista home premium Dual booted]

    and i recently installed charter HDTV reciever with all the goodie HDTV channels to display on my Sony bravia XBR 1080P LCD HDTV

    my question is.... i have an ADS instantHDTV PCI tuner card hooked into the analog input (the other is for HDTV antenna) to my computer from the HDTV set top box. media center scans for set top box but will not let me go farther than the "IR reciever not detected" screen when setting up my tv signal. so in other words, my IR reciever/remote is not MCE compatible aparantly.


    bottom line:
    1. my short question is this is there a way to set up an HDTV set top box using MCE without the MCE remote/Reciever?

    2. are there other programs that allow HDTV signals through my HDTV set top box?

    3. IS it even possible or are there successful setups running in peoples living rooms using my set up?

    [ Hdtv Set-Top box -------> HTPC -------> HDTV]


    any help on this subject is greatly appreciated as i joined here for answers because i can't find anything on the web pertraining to what exactly im looking for
