According to the manual, my phone can act as a remore control via Bluetooth for 3 windows apps, Desktop, Media Player and Powerpoint.
I have BT working fine but cannot get Remote to work, can anyone offer some pearls of wisdom?
Thanks.

You just need to make sure your Bluetooth hardware users a Bluetooth stack that supports HID profile - the newest Widcomm or Bluesoleil will work. Then from your phone you start the Remote Control application.

I tried it when doing a review of this phone and it worked fine.

You can also make remotes for any application/key combo.

Check out this tool from SE

OK, my BT device is a DLink and it supports HID. I think I am being very dumb here and am wondering if there is some software I should have running on the PC for RemoteControl to work?
I can transfeer files to and from the phone no problem and when I initiate RC on the phone all seems to go well in terms of establishing contact but nothing actually works.
i suspect soemone is going to say "Well you have done xxx havent you?" and I am going to go "Ooops!"

You need to have media player/powerpoint open to use their controls on the phone.

When it's connected your mouse pointer should move around the screen when you move the joystick on your phone and left softkey as left click, etc.

Works great on my Mac with my k750i and worked fine when I had a k700i as well.

Like freitasm said, you need to make sure your bluetooth driver (as well as your hardware) supports HID, perhaps try (re)installing the latest from the dlink website.
