title says it all. in addition to emulation control, i'd like to use this (coupled w/ the wireless controller of course) for HTPC stuff in XP (not MCE), which requires moving the pointer around in windows. obvious question perhaps but i'd like to know for sure before buying.

EDIT: Ended up buying this myself, so here's the answer: yes, given you use a joystick/controller software to map to mouse/keyboard movements. I'm using JoyToKey, but apparently Control MK also works. Here's the instructions and mapping for JoyToKey: http://www.hellgateguru.com/forum/showthread.php?p=207337#post207337

EDIT#2: Actually the software xPadder is more versatile and easier to set up. give it a go instead.

I second the xPadder recommendation. I'm using it with a wired 360 controller and with a little setup (both analog sticks move the mouse at different speeds; arrow keys, mouse buttons, and browser forward/back mapped to the rest of the buttons and triggers) it's more comfortable than using my mouse.

I'm still on the fence about the wireless receiver tho; I have vista home 32bit and am worried about compatibility problems.

P.S. Just remember to disable xPadder when you want to actually use the gamepad in a game that already has mouse support.

Traycerb, I'd like to use this controller to control PowerDVD (or comparable dvd player software) - have you done this? How is it?

Thanks!

If you have mapping software that can map out play, stop, skip, search, etc. The yes.

"yes, given you use a joystick/controller software to map to mouse/keyboard movements"

Can you confirm this Traycerb?
