    This is really giving me grief.....

    I have 2 original MCE remotes with the 4 coloured buttons works 100%. But I have 5 clients

    I cannot get them anymore so I have bought 2 Speedlinks SL6399. These are not compatible with MP but works fine in MCE... but with the keyboard plugin they are 99% useable so still not there yet

    Next I bought a Hama MCE remote looks like this

    Media Centre Remote Control

    Quite nice as it has a mouse function but alas it is not compatible with MP but works fine in MCE and Win 7. But now my new PC is Win 7 and the keyboard plugin no longer works..

    What can I buy that is similar to my original Microsoft MCE remote, the coloured buttons I use all the time for return to full screen function and aspect ratio changes.

    None of the clients have a need for a harmony but I am reluctant to buy one as I do not trust the harmony to work with the Speedlink or Hama IR recievers as my MS remotes do not and that is what is is going to have to emulate.

    I just want soemthing that has the MS functionality and works straight out of the box.:confused:
