Features

Features
The URM-15T Remote for PCs & Laptops (previously sold as the Keyspan Remote for iTunes) is a RF (radio frequency) remote that allows you to control iTunes and other multimedia applications on your Mac or PC through walls and furniture.

How it Works:
The remote controls your multimedia applications by sending them the same keystrokes that you do when you control the application from a keyboard. For example, pressing the spacebar on the keyboard causes iTunes to play a track. The remote sends the same key to iTunes when you press the 'play' button on the remote -- allowing you to control iTunes from across the room.

Controls iTunes even when in the background (requires Windows 2000/XP or Mac OS X)
Includes key maps for iTunes, MusicMatch, Windows Media Player, WinAMP, QuickTime, PowerPoint and other popular multi-media applications. Simple control panel allows you to program the remote for use with additional applications

2 out of 5 eggsPiece of Junk for the price

Pros: Was nicely customizable with the software
Was white and matched a Mac

Cons: Remote uses CR2030 batteries which needed to be replaced frequently with everyday use.
Had software issues with Windows 7 for a while, but was finally fixed - after i replaced it with another remote.
Remote started making a clicking noise after a few months of ownership - still worked though so more of a materials used question
Base was a huge pain in the neck. I have seen much smaller bases with much bigger remotes. The thick cord in back always caused this thing to flip on its side which ruined the purpose of holding the remote in its body, the holder barely held it because it had no sides to lock it in place.

Other Thoughts: Saved the money and get an HTPC remote.

5 out of 5 eggsDid the trick!

Pros: Already has button presets included for many apps like Winamp. Different programs trigger different key maps for the buttons on the remote. Can easily be programmed to use VLC.

Cons: One or two more buttons would be nice. Doesn't include presets for VLC media play, but they are easy to

Other Thoughts: I don't know why they advertise this product as "remote for iTunes"... it works wonderfully with many pc applications. I should have bought this a long time ago.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent, Highly Customizable Remote

Pros: This remote is exactly what I was looking for. I built a home theater pc for our primary viewing area and needed a good remote. I use J. River Media Center (jrmediacenter.com) as my theater media software. Since this remote can be customized so that each button simply replicates a keyboard button combination, I simply went through and setup every button to act as it should. It works amazingly well. I removed all applications from the Keyspan Map Editor and just kept my main program and then exported the configuration settings to save. Now I can use the same settings because I have backed them up.

Cons: The line of sight range is the only issue. However, I plan on setting it up with my universal remote, which has a much more powerful IR emitter. I did test it a bit and it seems to work even better.

My major and last issue is that the remote seems to stop Windows XP from entering standby. Ideally, Windows would enter standby after 10 minutes and then wakeup when a button was pushed. This way, my home theater pc doesn't have to waste power nor does it have to be manually turned on and off.

Other Thoughts: I just purchased four more of these. I plan on adding more viewing stations in other rooms around the house. The best part is that if all the home theater pc's have the same remote and receiver, we won't have too much trouble with remotes! We'll just have a bunch of the same ones.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: This thing works great for a media center. All the buttons worked perfectly in MediaPortal without having to change a thing. It doesn't have a crazy amount of buttons, so it's simple to use. And to top it off, every single button is customizable to a mouse movement, key press, or key combination press. You can make this work with pretty much anything.

Cons: Line of sight use is a little bit of a pain sometimes, but not horrible.

Other Thoughts: With maybe 3-5 more buttons, this remote would be absolutely perfect.

Pros: Works pre progammed for several windows applications. Very comprehensive tutorial( find it in your start menu, not the help menu item.)

Cons: Almost impossible to track this sucker down on Newegg sight. No cons for the product at all; maybe a bit quircky in some apps but yet so usefull.

Other Thoughts: I am very, very pleased with this item, does all it should and more.
