Weird Things Happening Y510

Well heres a new thing that i descovered recently, When i was watching tv my laptop was in front of me and some website was open. While i was changing channels on the tv i noticed from the corner of my eye that the website was scrolling down. I thought to my self na maybe it just skipped but yet no last night i actually pointed the remote straight at  the laptop and the bookmarks pane started poping out in my Firefox :-D any one expirience simular problem, i mean its not a problem i was just wondering what is picking the IR.

Re: Weird Things Happening Y510

Keeps happening? What's your TV model/brand?
 
I'll try all my remotes and will get back if something happens to me!

The Y510 has its IR located in the front of the palmrest bezel.. next to the SD card slot. The Harmony series remotes from logitech are learning remotes, so it probably probed your pc until it found the protocols the Y510 responds to.

Re: Weird Things Happening Y510

The answer possibly lies in this thread, unfortunately the member never replied as to whether or not this was the case.

CIR port

For use with a Lenovo remote control. You can use the remote control to operate Lenovo Shuttle Center. For details of the remote control operation, see the instructions supplied with it.

Re: Weird Things Happening Y510

Perhaps IR is just not listed there as it is part of another component or maybe disabled somehow.
 
I'd give it a try with a Media Center remote... mine's broken now :smileysad: but there's another on its way here. Will post as soon as I get it.

I have this laptop and my Tivo remote consistantly makes my laptop beep and opens the bookmark all tabs dialogue box in firefox. It will also wake the display when it times out.   Has anyone figured out how to turn off cir?

Re: Weird Things Happening Y510 tv remote and cir

Either physically turn off inside the notebook by plugging it off, or put a sticky untransparent tape on it.
