Okay, I'm planning to install MP on my sisters PC and I'm having trouble getting a Microsoft MCE 2005 remote from my usual sources (both out of stock), plus I just remember its an OEM product, so I need to buy something else with it to satisfy the Windows OEM conditons, so I figured I'd give eBay a try and found this http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/BRAND-NEW-Win...826342868QQcategoryZ51086QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem . Its cheaper than the latest Microsoft MCE 2005 remote (which is what I have) according to the seller is an earlier version, without the four colored buttons at the bottom. So my question is, will it work out of the box with MP?

Better to avoid the one pictured in the auction, it lacks the all important coloured buttons, these allow you to toggle between fullscreen and windowed media playback, invoke the context-menu, return to home and aspect ratio selection.

Okay, fair enough. Anyone know of an UK online retailers that sell the Microsoft MCE 2005 remote kit. Both I know both ebuyer and scan.co.uk normally have them, but both are currently out of stock! Any suggestions?

P.S. - Strangely, the TV Server my single seat setup (1.27 on a modest machine running Windows 10 Pro x64) is working from my office machine MP client.

MP1 MP2 MP2 DLNA status? DE
What I meant is that we have a MP2 plugin called UPnP Render that can play media from DLNA servers if I remember correctly. I don't know the current state of the plugin though. That's why MP2 probably never will be certified. ;) Yes, that was also the idea, but it is a big job as all TV's, software etc. seems to not do everything...
