My computer is Used for multimedia. I have 3 monitors including my 51 inch hi def tv, and a 7.1 surround system. I have thousands of tv episodes and movies and songs on my computer and I didnt like having to run to my computer every time I needed to turn it down or pause it. I have not messed with ANY of the programeable stuff on this remote but when you plug it in and install it the volume automatically controls the system volume and the pause button will pause anything on windows media player so it does what I need it to do and I couldnt ask for more.
Bought as a remote to let my kids control XBMC. They broke my $100 gyration remote and I wanted an RF replacement. The mouse causes XBMC to crash so I disabled it. The buttons don't always work - the remote seems to need to warm up with a few key presses when it hasn't been used in a few minutes. It does the job but when it breaks I'll probably try something else.
I know this product is excellent when functioning as I have owned one before. I thought I could recreate that magic this time around, however, this remote does not have any available drivers for Windows 7 64bit. After much time spent searching for and trying different methods of getting this product to work, I ended up purhasing a different remote. I will update later on how that one works out.
