Hello. I completed the upgrade from Vista to Windows 7 earlier today.
While the upgrade went OK, Media Center can no longer access the IR Hardware for some reason.
I consistently get the error message IR Hardware Not Detected.
I did not do ANYTHING with the hardware prior or after the upgrade.
I am running on an E9150T and I believe the IR is eHome Infrared Receiver via USB.
Any help is appreciated as I have not found anything googling for the last couple of hours.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Problem appears to be solved. Not sure which of the following solved it, but I performed the following two tasks:
1. Plugged a second IR device into the second port of the IR Blaster. It was previously empty. This alone did not solve the problem.
2. Rebooted the system.
3. Went through a detailed set up / configuration of Media Center rather than a more simple one.
Viola! The IR Blaster appears to be working now. . .
