Good price, essential for using the xbox as a dvd player.. but not needed if your planning on purchasing the hd-dvd drive (as its in the box)

Worth getting if only so that you can turn your XBox of remotely when you've finished gaming.
I'm so lazy.

You can do that with the normal control, just hold the guide button for a few seconds until a menu comes up.

anyone know if these are IR or RF? reason being that my xbox sits behind my tv so there is no line of sight.

IR m8, needs line of sight.

Great! Thanks for letting us know.

Anyone know how well this works with the media player. I take it you can turn on the tv with this too.

Which media player do you mean?

And yes it can turn your tv on and off and also control the volume and the channel.

using the xbox as a media player. the only thing i dont like about using the controller is that it turns off. so when the ads come i have to turn it on and then forward. im assuming the remote stays on.

Yep, works like a charm, no need to switch the remote back on. I always find it handy to use when I'm streaming music from my PC whilst playing games, it's an easy way to pause / skip tracks etc. At this price, it's a bargain. Voted hot.

This is out of stock and the price has gone up again.

Anyone who missed this, deal extreme have a very similar 'unofficial' one for £6.67 delivered. I have one and it works great!

The XP/Vista MCE remotes can be had on ebay for as little as 99p not inc postage and yes they work just fine on the 360

Does this work on plain old XP? I.e, can I control WMP?

So you dont have to bring up the side bar? Very cool.

I assume it doesnt work with sky though.
