I am in need of a new remote for a new MP PC I'm putting together. I have an ATI remote that works well with it, but I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on a good compatible remote for windows XP and media portal? Thanks.

    Also worth mentioning: The "Power TV" and "Vol+", "Vol-" is programmable, meaning you can learn them IR codes form other remotes. (Sadly this is not the case with mute :mad:).

    Hey, thanks for your quick reply! That helps us a lot! Oh good, that means the two different clients can then also share a tuner. I have not even thought about tuner sharing with two different clients and that this could be a problem, perfect! Thanks!

    Thanks. Your screenshot is showing the "TVGuide", the mentioned "MiniEPG" appears, if you press "enter" or "OK" during Live-TV. But you're right, the channel arrow and PIP button are not reachable by mouse, something insibile is overlapping them and preventing focus. I'll fix that. Anyway, I'll provide a new installer to you soon...

    What is the problem with using an IR remote control? IR is the best supported for MP. There used to be available a few RF remote controls for WMC, such as this one and this one by Emprex (they look identical). But as you can see, they are no longer available new from Amazon. You may be able to obtain pre-loved samples from Ebay, but...
