I have the remote and IR receiver specified in the subject hooked up to my Windows 7 Windows Media Center PC.
The Chinavasion remote has number keys on it that are multi-functional. If you press "numlock" it toggles the input type of each respective key. For example, by default it acts as a 8 way mouse cursor. If you press "numlock" once it turns into a text/numeric input kind of like a telephone.
Is there anyway I can map my Harmony 650 such that if I press 8, it actually sends an 8 to the IR receiver? I'd like to be able to change the channels in WMC (I have a TV tuner) and I can't figure out how to get it to work. I've tried using the various number commands like "8" but it doesn't seem to work.

No. Numlock tells the driver to interpret the key as a number. So there is no way to do it without first turning on numlock.
After trying every MCE remote and wireless keyboard/mouse under the sun, I finally found the perfect solution, the free Moble Mouse app for the iPhone/iPad/iPod. It's so much easier than fumbling around with a harmony.
