What are you using for an ir receiver. That is what is most important. 
Your remote doesn't really matter.
For instance, I have a harmony remote as well but I use a mceusb(or 
mceusb-vista, more commands to use) ir receiver. So all I did was tell 
the harmony software I have a windows media center and everything 
automatically worked.

Let me know if you have additional questions.
