It should work but I'm unaware of anybody using that particular model. It will also work with reduced functionality as it does not have the 4 colored buttons, each of which play an important role within MP (Toggle fullscreen/preview of media, Home, Context Menu and Aspect Ratio).

I would recommend against purchasing that remote.

Normally they are easy to get on ebay.co.uk and the sellers are wise to the fact that the better model are harder to obtain overseas, most are happy to ship to anywhere, but for some reason they are in very short supply at the moment. Either M$ are tightening up, a new model is on the way or ??? but for a good 6 - 8 weeks they have been few and far between.

The above applies to retailers also. I've got my fingers crossed that there's a new model on its way *but* this is nothing more than wishful thinking/speculation.

I think I've solved the remote button issue, there was an unknown driver in Device Manager which I discovered was the Serial IO GPIO driver. Installing that appears to have solved the remote problem. Who knew? Thanks to all who contributed to my solution.

Perhaps it’s good to look here for WMC skin. In the wiki you find also further infos about setting up the media views. For further discussion it’s better to open another thread. I’ll mark the EPG topic as solved.
