In addition to the MC IR receiver built into or separate from your desktop you also have to have an IR blaster connected so it can control the STB.

Yes, it is true that Windows Media Center requires a special remote. You can usually tell if the remote you have will work by checking to see if there is a "Windows" logo key on the remote. If there is no Media Center button, then the remote is not going to work no matter what you try to do with it.

You may also need to load Media Center support drivers for the remote and sensor, those should be on the web site if needed.
