If you won't be using a TV tuner the Keyspan Digital Media Remote works great and it's only $9 after rebate at CompUSA right now. The remote is kinda small but for that price you can also buy a learning universal remote and use the small one for doing presentations or something. I suppose with a little programming the receiver...

I have a ATI Remote Wonder I; Which is cheap! There is a plugin for controlling MP around, just search this forum! Works great, And best of all ... it works from a distance since it's a RF-control.

URC-100 I'd recommend the URC-100. This is a nice RF + IR remote that can do 8 devices, and fully learnable (plus JTAG interface!), with over 40 keys. There's a very good discussion of this remote (and its bigger brothers) at http://www.remotecentral.com/urcseries/ For the RF portion to work, you need to buy the MRF-100A RF...

Hi all, I'm looking for a RF remote which is able to get the machine started. X10 from Medion/ Marmitek is not capable to do so. I found these potential ones, but I'm not sure: - ATI AIW remote II - SCONI V2 ( external solution ) ... Thanks for any comment. Gerd

MP1 MP2 ir receiver DE
I would suggest biting the bullet and just going with the MS MCE 2005 (European) remote. I don't know a lot about the Tira, but the MCE remote should have all the reciever functions and you also get the blasters and the remote itself. In Australia it's pretty cheap so I guess it would be in other countries too.

Just an update on the eBay transaction I mentioned earlier. The item came in, and in very good condition. The only thing I would dock the guy for was the actual packaging, as when I received it the stickyness of the package was so dry it was practically all the way open. I'm lucky I have an honest mail carrier I guess.

this is the way to go when you use analogue output... when you use SPDIF (and AC3/DTS), cannot be done peterfup, if you want to connect your big speakers directly to a computer, you will still need a pre-amp, that can drive your speakers (same Ohm and not crazy Watt difference)... maybe I misunderstood you?
