Replaced my original Windows media centre remote. The old ones been stepped on and drop kicked how many times an never failed. Backlit and peanut shaped it was almost perfect except that the number pad wasn't backlit just the upper half. The new remote is pretty sleek, it's all black vs black and grey. It's longer and slimmer and has a nice curve, the edges are a bit hard but not bad, the layout is almost completly different so a huge learning curve but the additional buttons are pretty nice, super disapointed that there was only one IR blaster, the old remote had two, can't use them on the new one as i've lost the old ones years ago when I last used it with a digital box(the main reason I bought the new one) So theres no chance i'll be dual digital boxing it as buying a second blaster to pkug in(there is a port for a second one on the back of the ir reciever) but no point, no real canadian HD support with windows media centre as HD set top boxes are the only option. But I digress, nice remote, not the best but it does the job right.
I've purchased a few MCE remotes before for use with XBMC and have had great success. This is no exception. It works out of the box with XBMC (both with a manual install on Debian and with xbmc-live/xbmcbuntu).
I had a different MCE remote before this one, this is the one I ordered for a new HTPC and I was so impressed I've already ordered a second one. The button placements leave something to be desired, but other than that little failing I'm very pleased with this MCE remote.
Using this small remote to navigate a HTPC running XBMC. Some of buttons launch windows MCE automtically, but the basic functionality works without any configuration in XBMC. It may be possible to remap those other buttons for added functionality in XBMC, but I havn't looked into it yet.
This remote is a very nice compliment to a MCE-based HTPC. I use mine with Windows 7 (zero compatibility issues, by the way) - using a well-modded Media Browsser plug-in for MCE, and the remote bats nary an eyelash as it effortlessly navigates through my libraries. It is comfortable to hold, the build quality feels good, and has already been dropped a couple of times by my 2-year-old without any detrimental repercussions.
