Hi Guys,

I have a Hauppauge 500 capture card (dual tuner) and have configured it accordingly. However, every time I start "live TV" I get a pop up stateting "hcwirblast.dll cannot be found". If I accept this using my keyboard, the remote works fine.

Any ideas? I have reloaded the hauppauge app several times and searched for the .dll but to no avail

That dll is the one that blasts the IR sender to change channels on something like a Sky box. ISTR it normally sits in c:\windows\system32 and I think gets called from Haupblast (a sub widget) that in turn gets called from gbpvr to change STB channels (setup in config).
It got installed on mine from IRblast or IRblastwiz
