Got 2 and 1 is dead after 3 days


Worked fine out of the box

One of them just died after 3 days on my new build. The remote is fine its the sensor that just stopped working. Not sure if I should return it and try another brand

Learning? Not so much


Controls MCE

Learning function doesn't include my TV power ; Unable/unclear how to disable the sleep button (don't want the computer to sleep, must stay on)

WMC Remote Review


The learning feature isn't a true learning feature where you point the remotes at each other and one "learns" the others commands, instead it's done through WMC, but the end result is the same.

Easy to set up ; Cheap

No problems so far

Surprisingly Two Thumbs Up


At first I wasn't able to get it too work. Repositioned batteries and one clicked in further or the software installation took effect. Works great with windows media center. Just a little tricky to figure this out

Tricky, but I think it works

Does not learn other remotes


Do not buy this remote if you're looking for Media Center remote that can learn other remotes, this one does not do this.

Works with Xbox 360 right out of the box

I was under the impression this remote would learn the commands of other remotes. My plan was to use this remote to control the volume of my audio system which my computer is connected to. I also thought this would work with my Xbox 360 connected to my...

Perfect for XBMC on Linux


I purchased this remote to use with my HTPCs running Fedora and XBMC. Minimal configuration was required; All I needed to do was install lirc and the configuration file for the remote and XBMC picked it up. The remote itself is well constructed and...

Rosewill RHRC-11001


I got this to control my HTPC with my harmony one remote and after getting the remote settings down it works like a charm. Its too bad they don't sell an IR receiver without the remote since it is of no use to me.

Plug and play right out of the box

None so far

Meh, was a shellshocker.

Windows media Center recognizes it fine, will wake the PC from sleep, or put it to sleep, some BIOSes will recognize it enough to power on from the sleep key if powered off, check you settings, try power on from USB keyboard

Button layout is poor, no BluRay buttons, that can be hacked around ; Not so much a remote, as a limited function multimedia keyboard ; The RHRC-11000 will work in Linux, this unit, the RHRC-11001, no so much, expect support in the 3.5 kernel

Missing buttons


What do you do when Windows 7 has missing features? You get a plug in or external application such as for Blu-ray disc support. What do you do when your remote has missing buttons? You get a different remote. But that makes the original one useless....

Good range, better receiver than cheaper models, has pictures, radio, music and video buttons that are missing from many competing remotes

Missing red, green, yellow and blue buttons for Blu-ray
