Hi everyone, wondering if anyone has tried this remote? I can't seem to get hold of the original philips one anymore.. and was hoping I could use one of these - in one of my mediaportal machines it sort of works ok, but things like MPTray dont work. But in my other machine it's asking for drivers and the remote doesn't come with any.

Appreciate any help anyone can provide.

Cheers

Apparently those remotes use the same drivers as the Microsoft ones (now discontinued) so will only work with Windows XP MCE, Vista Home Premium or Vista Ultimate as they have the drivers included.  May also work with other versions of Vista.
Unless you can get the drivers from somewhere.

I just bought this remote for use with Vista Ultimate and it works perfectly with Windows Media centre. No request for drivers or any installation add ons of any kind.
