I bought this remote from eBay and have been trying to customise it ever since. Most of the buttons work but I was hoping I could use something like Autohotkey and WinLIRC to fully personalise every aspect of it. However after trying many remotes from around the house, it appears the receiver won't accept any other signals than from supplied remote. Which explains why WinLIRC (used to get raw IR data) won't work.
Does anyone have any experience with this (or a similar) remote. It's even advertised as being able to shutdown your PC (red button on top left), but for some reason does nothing.
I just want to customise what the buttons do. And I'm open for any solution, as hacky as it might be. Hopefully free though.
Oh and I'm on Windows 7.
Update: I looked around Device Manager and unplugged/replugged to find the device. It's under 3 HID Keyboard Device entries under Keyboard and also as a HID-compliant mouse. The Vendor/Product ID (0x073A/0x2230) refers to Chaplet Systems, Inc (thanks whitequark).
IR reading is out as it seems the receiver translates IR data into keystrokes and mouse movements.
Still, any help with this device would be greatly appreciated :)
