4 out of 5 eggsWorks Great with Win 7 Media Center

Pros: Provides control of Win 7 Media Center. Also provides functionality equivalent to that of a two-button mouse. Perfect for HTPC.

Cons: Moving the pointer is somewhat cumbersome. Cannot re-program power button to turn TV on and off.

Other Thoughts: I got this remote to control an HTPC running Win 7 Media Center that is driving a 720p TV. I've been very happy. The remote has the green start button and several other shortcut keys corresponding to the WMC TV sub-menu. Works great with the Netflix built-in WMC plug-in and with the Media Browser WMC plug-in.

The remote contains a rocker pad for controlling mouse pointer movement and separate buttons to control the left mouse and right mouse buttons. For programs that are not optimized for use in the WMC environment, the ability to invoke the mouse cursor and force the issue is invaluable. The rocker pad is a functional but inefficient way to control the pointer. Don’t plan to use it to play mouse-centered games. Rather, this set-up is most effective to make the few clicks necessary to start an application that is not mouse-centric. I find the rocker pad adequate to open a web browser for the purpose of reading the paper or watching The Colbert Report on its native web site. For serious configuration tasks or web browsing, including anything that requires typing, I keep a wireless keyboard with built-in track pad handy. Not having to get up and find the keyboard when I only need a click or two is the beauty of this device.

My only complaint is that the remote is not natively programmable, such that I cannot program the power button to turn the TV on and off rather than the HTPC. If you use the TV’s built-in speaker(s), you will run into the same problem with the volume buttons. This makes it necessary to keep the TV’s native remote around. One egg off for these rough edges, but what you get in return is the mouse function, which many other remotes lack.

5 out of 5 eggsNice overall

Pros: Nice layout, good price, built-in mouse functionality

Cons: The 'info' button maps to right mouse click instead of a keypress, so it can't be mapped in XBMC.

Had to work around that by associated the 'info' function to the record button which wasn't in use.

5 out of 5 eggsFor you Harmony owners...

Pros: works as advertised

Cons: While it's handy in bed, it's not a keyboard and mouse. But didn't think it would be.

Other Thoughts: To use your harmony remote with this IR receiver:

In the logitech software, Add Device. Select Computer>Media Center. Find ORTek: VRC-1100
Works fine (model number on back of this unit is vrc-1100, its just rebranded

Had it for a year now, sold under different brand name, no problems

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome MC Remote

Pros: Cheap! Works great.

Cons: Nothing I can thing of.

Other Thoughts: This is the second media center remote I have purchased (both from Newegg of course). I really just bought it to use the IR receiver with my control system, but once I played with it I decided I like it better than my more expensive one. I travel a lot for work, and I always connect my laptop to the TV in my hotel via HDMI. I used to travel with a mini keyboard w/ trackball that worked fine, but the main thing I do is watch netflix or stream off of my media server. This makes it easy to navigate either from the comfort of bed. I would say try this remote before spending the money on a pricier one.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat remote!

Pros: Works great out of the box. No special installation or drivers needed in Windows7 - just hook it up to a USB port, Windows installs the drivers automatically, and you are good to go.

Inexpensive remote and receiver for HTPCs.

Intuitive design that even my 4 year old can use effectively.

Mouse cursor feature is nice for those times when you don't want to drag out a mouse for simple actions.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I have two of these being used on different PCs and they work great with Windows Media Center. One one PC, I use a Harmony remote (works fine), and I use the included remote on the other PC for my 4-year old. Either way, everything works like I expect it to.

Also want to point out that the "power" button on the remote will put the PC to sleep or wake it up from sleep. Nice feature for an HTPC!

I was going to list this as a "con", but it didn't apply to me so I'll say it here instead; I can imagine some people may want some way to customize button mapping. There is no included software to do this, but there are utilities you can download to do that if you want.
