Works great on Windows 7. Once plugged into a USB port, the receiver was immediately recognized and installed without additional drivers. All of the functions I needed for XBMC (Frodo) worked right out of the box. There are several buttons on the remote I didn't need (for example, the Live TV button). I remapped these buttons to perform other tasks such as enabling the debug log.

Note that this remote may be very frustrating to work with on Windows XP pro. However, there was not a single problem on Windows 7.

I am very pleased with this remote and can happily recommend it.

This is the perfect remote to control PC media center. It is plug and play,no need for set up. Simple to use and fast response. Seller delivered fast in two days. The remote is not direction sensitive, just aim in the general direction of the monitor screen. No need to aim at the signal receiver. Functions almost like a RF remote. Highly recommended.

Best of all it puts and wakes the PC from sleep instantly no deed to shut down or sign in to the computer. It is mated perfectly to the PC media center and it is as if custom designed for my purpose. I love the back button. It brings you back to whatever you were watching instantly without any fuss. The remote is well designed and fits the hand and balanced well. There is no chance it will be pointed in the wrong direction.

Update after first impression:

The remote is much more versatile than I first expect. It does act like a RF remote. It will work no matter which direction you point. The OK button also enlarges the pictures for detail reviewing. You can change the enlargement by multiple clicking of the OK button. Also by slicking the steering arrows you can center the enlarged photo exactly how you want it. This is fantastic for editing your photos.

I was looking for a MCE remote that MCE would recognize as an IR RECEIVER so that I could use Media Center with a settop box. I had one that cost less (about $14) and while that one worked fine with tuners that did not depend on settop boxes, it simply would not work with settop boxes.
This one arrived today and it was truly plug and play. I went through the MCE TV Signal Setup (for at least the 50th time) and MCE recognized that there was a settop box involved. The only problem I had was that when MCE got to the IR Receiver stage, it didn't see one. When I pluged the IR blaster cable into the box, MCE was happy. I let MCE do its configuration automatically and it "learned" 0, 3,4,5,6, 7 from the settop box remote and that was that.
The layout of the remote is nice. buttons are clearly labeled with words, not just symbols. The cheaper remote I had used all symbols and they were not self explanatory. Also, by contrast, the fast forward button is adequately separated from the skip forward button for fat fingers (same with reverse / skip backward). The back key is nicely separated. The number keys also have the letters on them for those of us who are not texting-savy.
The only downside was the lack of any documentation - no quick start guide, no user manual, no printed material whatsoever. The cheaper remote also had a built in mouse but for that, I just use the real mouse from my PC.

This is the second one I own and won't be the last. I love these remotes, the range is superb, the layout is good, and best of all they seem to be just plug-and-play with everything I have tried them with. I have used these with windows, ubuntu (xbmc), openELEC (raspberry-pi xbmc), and raspbmc (another raspberry-pi xbmc), and they worked flawlessly with all of them. My only gripe would be that in a dark room it can be hard to find the right button, but for the price I just can't bring myself to drop a star over that.

I totally recommend these to anyone looking to get the most from a home theater PC, on a budget or not.

Bought this mostly for the IR receiver so I can control XBMC via my Harmony One remote - a good cheap solution and the remote came in handy as well as I had to teach the Harmony a couple of IR commands that were not mapped properly within the software (this remote is actually not in their database - you need to use "MCE Remote" and then it automatically maps most of the buttons but some did not map over.

I have two of these remotes. I bought this one to use with my new Raspberry Pi and RasBMC installation. Works right out of the box as advertised. It even comes with an IR extender so that you can hide the actual IR receiver. Very happy with this purchase.
