drum roll please...................
well, it works... kind of. the basic features work. i was able to use it to open Windows Media Player, Winamp, and iTunes (it will open a bunch of other programs, but you get the point). you can even open WMP and pick the file you want to watch. good for those of us that have a bunch of movies on our hard drives and dual DVD drives.
you can map the buttons on the remote to be any keystroke you want, so you have a fair amount of control with it. control the volume, skip songs, etc. you can also point to certain files or folders with the remote, so it gives you a fair amount of control.
i tried the more advanced features on it like Hybernate, WiFi button, and fan speed controller, and it popped up a message that said those features are only available on the P5W DH Deluxe motherboard. so the program obviously knew that i wasn't running it on "its" motherboard but still allowed me the basic controls.
hope this helped
