Re: Remote Control Doesn't Work
|Originally posted by kpurcell
I have an NP8880 with the TV Tuner and remote control. The remote really does nothing except turn the computer on and off. None of the other buttons seem to do a thing. Why? Is there something wrong that I can fix?
Don't know why noone answered... Anyway, do you have the TV Tuner card drivers and TV Studio software installed? If so, is the little remote control icon displayed in the taskbar? It is necessary to decode the remote functions, although it is very limited in capability. As an alternative you could install one of the third party products that work with the 888X series remote, the downside being that they are pay to play - the upside that they can do alot more with it ( uICE is an example, although I haven't tried it myself it is supposed to work with the chipset in the 888X ). Otherwise, just download the TV Tuner drivers and TV Studio software from the Sager site ( if you don't already have them or there are newer ones available ).
