I have a Tira receiver and cant get it to work on windows 10.
Tried both the official drivers and those mentioned here but no matter what I try windows refuses them and consider the device is fine installed as a generic "USB input device".
Any ideas ?
i am assuming this is for a remote control
and if so this is been a pretty good way of dealing with remote problems.
this is what you need to do.
go into device manager. and remove and drivers for the remote.
you can figure this out if you plug the device in while in device manager. you will see it install.
right click the driver click uninstall..
then reboot the computer.
DO NOT UNPLUG THE REMOTE RECEIVER OR SCAN FOR NEW HARDWARE
you have to reboot the computer
while the computer is rebooting. pick any button on the remote and tape it point the remote at the receiver and keep on tapping the button.
you should hear 3 new device install tones from the computer once it boots up fully.
windows 10 may be a little different with this. but this works with windows 7 and people have had good luck with it working in windows 10
but from my understanding of what is happening is while windows is installing the drivers the remote goes to "sleep mode" and screws up the installation part way through that is why you get either a generic device or an Unknown USBCIR device
look around for that second one also it could be under the system or the usb section in the device manager you will need to uninstall that one also.
and by taping any button on the remote keeps the thing awake. and you will only have to do this once.
let me know if it helps you out. but this is the way to clean up the driver install for remotes in windows.
another method that has helped is you have to change the usb port the receiver is plugged into. some of them do not like usb 3.0 so make sure it is a usb2.0 and also with how the board manufacturers like to dasy change usb hubs one on top of another being at the first level usb port can also fix the problem.
i have heard that possible getting a cheap non powered usb hub and plugging into that and having that plugged in has also worked for some.
give it a shot. and let me now
