Best Remote?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have an old ATI Remote Wonder II but apparently there's a particular patch within Windows XP that completely breaks it's functionality. I also have a generic media center remote that I received with my TV tuner but it's kind of ghetto and sucks at accepting commands.

Basically what I'm looking for is a reliable remote that doesn't have issues accepting commands. All I really require is a D pad as well as a few configurable shortcut buttons for launching other applications. Any good recommendations? Price isn't a consideration.

I have the Logitech TouchMouse implementation installed and it's pretty handy when you need a mouse in a pinch, but I'd prefer something with explicit buttons.

Thanks!

Check out the Gyration Air Music Remote... you can find it for around $60 or you can get the exact same remote, but Dell branded, for about $40 off of ebay. I have one and it is hands down the best HTPC remote I've ever used.
