    Remote control for windows media player

    I have just installed an Acer Revo R3610 (SFF PC) running win 7 on the back of the TV in the bedroom It comes with a wireless mouse / keyboard but as its main job is as a medai player, whats a good remote to get?

    After crashing around on other forums the discontinued MS Vista remote gets good comments, but its getting increasingly difficult to find, and seem to be hitting £35+ on ebay 2nd hand. I think the reason the last model is sort after is that it can control some TV functions (on / off / voulme). So any pointers for something similar or better? Have seen various dell/phillips/hp and 3rd parth models just wondering what people use to control their HTPC.

    That one looks fine. Just make sure it has the 4 coloured buttons and is USB. I bet they're all the same on the inside.
