Hi PEOPLE
Evry thing progressing well with our build , but we had a question on usb remotes.
we brought one off trade me , for a play around , but it only worked on some of my computers.
Any way got it partialy going.
My question : Do you know of a good remote and software to use for htpc.
We want to: open and opperate media player, as well as  dvd drive and also for  VLC player and browse internet to stream etc .

The software i downloaded was inteliremote (shareware) but we cant program the ALT shortcut key to work.

cheers gary & angie

I find the Soundgraph iPAD to be very good. However you cant program the power key for your TV/DVD etc.

Most people like the Microsoft MCE Remote with USB IR Receiver combo, it's also quite cheap.  Make sure you buy the real microsoft remote, not an aftermarket replacement.

A more advanced remote might be MX800 from USR.

I also have a harmony 525, but i don't like it much.
