Hi,

I see on ebay you can get unofficial Vista media centre compatible remotes and IR receivers for under a tenner - but I don't really need the remote - only the receiver. Does anyone have one they're willing to sell? If you've got a remote control too, and want to sell as a bundle, I'm willing to buy them both. Ideally it would be an official Microsoft one, but unofficial that works on Vista Media Centre perfectly is fine too :-)

Please let me know!

I've got an ATI RF remote (remote + receiver) somewhere in a drawer... Not sure if it works with Vista, and not knowing what the model number is (unless they only made one ;)) I can't investigate until tonight... Would this be the sort of thing you are after?
#2
Possibly - i'm not sure it's going to work properly with Vista Media Centre though...

I've since been told only official ones do everything :s

If you could find the model number I will be able to do a bit of research on it anyway, thanks! :-)

Did a google and it's this one: http://ati.amd.com/products/remotewonder/

Googling further reports some success, some failures on Vista... Am a Linux man myself (on which it works), so I honestly can't say what it does, or doesn't on a Windows platform.

Thanks Quinten, but I think I will pass on your offer! Really appriciate the time you've spent, it's just I only need the IR receiver as I have a Logitech Harmony - thus I really only need the IR receiver to be 100% compatible with Vista.

I guess all I really need is a Official Microsoft Vista IR Receiver. Failing that, I could buy a Vista compatible remote and receiver on ebuyer for £7 as a last resort I guess!
