      Re: an enquiry can i get a media centre remote

      I don't see why it wouldn't work. These remotes usually come with a usb dongle that you plug in to the usb socket for picking up the IR transmissions. My USB TV Card came with a remote and it works pretty well. So if you don't have a TV card it may be best to buy one of these. There are lots of TV Cards available check the usual places, Ebuyer.co.uk, Scan.co.uk, Amazon etc. Google them for reviews but make sure they are Vista Media Centre Certified, most are anyway. Alternatively you could buy a remote on it's own and use it via the USB connection. Hope this helped you, if not give us a shout.
