This remote worked right out of the box, and all the keys performed their function as they are labeled. However, I wanted to customize the functions to control VLC, and various other programs. It turns out that the remote is totally customizable in Windows if you don't mind tinkering with the registry a bit. The key to look for is (remember, save a copy before you change any key):

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\HidIr\Remotes\745a17a0-74d3-11d0-b6fe-00a0c90f57da

This key contains hex values mapping the remote buttons to PS/2 scan codes. First value is the remote key, last three values are the PS/2 code. So for example, an entry like

49,00,00,00,04,08,22,\

maps the "pics" key to win+5, launching my image browser. The hex codes for all the buttons on this remote (except Radio... it's a mystery!) are:

0c sleep
14 ffwd
15 rwd
16 play
17 rec
18 pause
19 stop

Bought this for windows media center and then my eyes were opened to plex and I have never looked back again. I occasionally use it in my media center but mostly in plex or XBMC even without programming the buttons. What really surprised me the KMP, VLC and a host of media player work with this out of the box and most of all....it works on LINUX!!!

I've paired this remote with a minimal Ubuntu 12.10 install & XBMC v12 and it operates flawlessly right off the bat. The range is great and it's easy to use.

This remote gets the job done and performs as it should every time.

Pros: Works with Windows 7 and 8.1 Media Center. Works with Intel NUC IR sensor out of the box. Very durable (this is my second one after my dog chewed the first. It still works but looks gnarly so I wanted a shiny new one.) Works with XBOX 360.

Cons: Not backlit, not universal.

Begin with the given that no remote is perfect. Everyone has their own wishes for this button to be over here and that button down there, etc. We learn to live with them as they are, and this one is pretty easy to get used to. Controls are grouped logically and it wasn't long before I was using it in the dark. Functionally, this remote is fantastic. It works so well with Media Center that I find myself reaching for it even when I'm sitting at my computer because it's more convenient than using a mouse for many operations - one button instead of several clicks. Because response to remote commands happen at CPU speed instead of at the speed of the little microprocessors in TVs, this remote is quick, eliminating the annoying lag time of many TV remotes I've used. In addition to controlling Media Center, it can also put the computer in Sleep mode without getting out of bed.

The USB extension that comes with the receiver is easily adequate to use a rear USB port and still position the receiver where it's an easy target.

You can use the IR receiver with a Harmony Remote to control XBMC. It works flawlessly and is 100% compatible with the original Microsoft Windows MCE IR Receiver. (Which I also have.)

Remote control quality is quite good too and doesn't feel cheap like so many of the cheap remotes that are included with TV tuners, etc.

This item, despite being Windows MCE geared, works very well with the Mythbuntu 12.04.3 software. Highly recommended for those who are using linux-based DVRs.

I've been using the popular Logitech K400 as my mainstay HTPC controller. It's as nice as you can get for a full-size keyboard and control. But sometimes it's nice just having the feel of a remote.

Setup
I use Windows 7 with Windows Media Center as my prime HTPC engine (HDHomeRun Prime Tuner in background). I simply plugged in the IR dongle into the front of my case, and windows did the rest! It automatically recognized the device, downloaded and installed the appropriate software. In 2 minutes I was up and running. All the buttons are preconfigured to work with WMC!

Function
Fairly decent range. Perhaps better than my k400, which probably has more to do with how a remote is held (in one hand, pointed at something), versus a keyboard(laying down). The sleep button is great, as I can wakeup and put to sleep the my HTPC very simply (if you have an SSD running your OS, the response time is quite impressive). The remote functions well with Netflix within WMC too. The builtin functions makes setting changes in WMC easy to find and make.

The dongle itself is a valuable commodity as you can pair it with other remote options such as the popular Logitech Harmony universal remote series. The price of this package is worth it just for the dongle!

I am looking forward to trying this with my Raspberry pi running XBMC and will update the review with the results. For now I'm very happy with this on my main HTPC!

5 stars!
