Does what it should

 

Purchased the remote for use with a DIY XBMC setup, it's worked flawlessly so far. The mouse functionally seems a bit superfluous, though the presence of the mouse buttons on the remote let it resume from sleep mode (with PCs that have an option to...

Good First Remote

 

It works and does what is advertised. The mouse function works similar to an old ATI remote I had and is familiar in the hand to other MCE remotes

Not backlit and fairly simple.. For being a generic MCE remote the receiver has native windows drivers and auto installs, but DOES NOT work with other generic MCE remotes. That rubs me the wrong way and was the only reason for not getting 5 eggs

Best Overall Remote

 

What can I say... it just works, flawlessly!

Consumer review by:

Remote Lacking Some Features

 

This remote cannot send keyboard commands as well as some other MCE remotes. It took quite a bit of time to figure out why that was (it has to do with the IR receiver being of a different standard). The things it does, it does well enough (I had some...

Good, inexpensive remote

 

Can change system key mappings via xmodmap and MythTV settings to get this remote to perform most of the functions I use in MythTV. Recently started using unit in large room with very high ceilings and now must point unit directly at receiver.to get it...

Works with MythTV ; Decent range ; Inexpensive

None serious

Consumer review by:

Much better than using phone apps as remote

 

Bought this to use instead of Remote Potato app's Remote Control. RP's RC worked great, its just difficult to use as a remote, button feel plays a big part for ease of use. It's a pain locating buttons on a flat phone screen without staring at the...

1 star for lack of back light, which amplifies the crappiness of having the numbers at bottom being black text on dark gray buttons

Partially Works

 

Most of the navigation buttons worked, but since my main purpose for this remote is to use the DVR function of media center, not being able to pause or stop is pretty significant. I contacted Adesso and they said all buttons should work and no drivers...

Easy set-up, sleek, easy to use

Play, pause, stop and volume do not work

DOA

 

You can't really complain when you only pay $18 for a MCE remote. No big deal really.

As always with NewEgg service and speed is superb. The remote seemed to be decent to good quality so I gave it 2 eggs. RMA and waiting on NewEgg to send another

IR receiver was DOA. Tried remote and receiver on 3 different computers but it wouldn't work. Programmed a Harmony for the remote and the receiver still did not respond. Called their tech support just to be sure. Minimal navigation, got someone in the US

Consumer review by:

Initially good remote. Poor service, no warranty despite claim.

 

The remote seemed quite nice, and I'm not sure if my problem was an exception, or due to a product defect. The fact that Adesso seems to dodge the extra $1 it would take to ship a new remote to me after I've paid to return the defective one, and choose...

Immediately worked with linux, easily configurable with XBMC. Directional pad was quite nice to use, often avoiding needing to get a mouse out

Right-click button and info button are the same thing (they send the same signal), meaning that there are 2 buttons for only 1 function ; After 9 months, the remote stopped working, and wasn't due to a battery or battery contact issue. Despite having a...

Great Remote!

 

I use a free piece of software called "LM Remote Keymap" to change the function of some of the buttons. Google it and you will find it. There is a free version and a donator version. Now when I press the blue button it launches Beyond TV, green=Media...

Plugged it in to a PC running Win7 64-bit. Drivers were found, installed, and it just started working. That simple ; Codes for this remote are in the Harmony remote library under Media Center PC. I set up the Harmony remote to mimic it ; Ordered from...
