    I've been looking a while for a keyboard and mouse to replace my current Logitech EX100 set which btw suck. So i came across the MS Arc keyboard which is new to me. It seems nice, only drawback is the arrowkeys. Think i can live with that...

    Also the MS Arc mouse seems like a nice and fancy thingy, maybe not as good due to the fancy look, but this is after all livingroom equipment, so i think i can live with that compromize:

    Now, does anybody know if i can use both these with the same usb dongle, or would i have to use both of them? I've also been looking at the MS BT Mobile 6000 keyboard, but it's bluetooth which is a drawback for me..

    Ok, but if the range is that good it might be working acceptable even if i plug it in the rear of the HTPC... Don't see any other minimalistic, yet elegant option for me...
