WOW what a bad remote

 

Bought with the intentions of using with a Linux based Kodi/XBMC setup. Does not work out of the box. Tried to use with a different Windows based Kodi/XBMC setup for client. It says its a RC6 Remote, its not. Used Eventghost to remap the half of the...

Some of the buttons work

Only some of the buttons work with Kodi/XBMC (windows), no out of the box functionality for Linux based Kodi/XBMC

Works great!

 

I bought another "similarly" priced remote, only to find out that the "other" remote won't work with my Microsoft RC6 wireless keyboard device (like my old model HA-IR01SV (TSHA-IR01) remote control does). Kudos to Rosewill, -and you should mention...

Made for WMC, and works just fine ; This is meant to be a relatively low cost remote control, and it fulfills my expectations ; Works in Linux Mint, Xbuntu and Ubuntu ; Works with Raspberry Pi-2 ; The IR receiver also works with all other RC6 iR...

This isn't a gold plated MIL spec device ; It's a low cost RC6-standard remote control and IR receiver

Works great

Small hard to see button labels. Could just be my eyes are old

Works well

 

Used with XBMC/Kodi in an Arch Linux media center.

It works great for me in Linux, and it was a decent price

Would be nice if the buttons lit up so I could see them in the dark

Works like a champ

 

I installed an internal IR receiver in my HTPC (I had to drill an unobtrusive 1/8" diam. hole above the front USB port in the LIAN LI Model PC-C37B chassis so receiver could see the remote) and didn't use the IR dongle that came with the remote.

Works good and needed an black remote so it would color match all my other remotes

None

Works great on both Linux and Windows

 

Not exactly sure what "Netflix Function" means. I'm currently using Windows 7 only on my main PC and there is no mention of Netflix in Device Manager or anywhere else. But to have a MCE remote work so well with Linux is rare.

Great remote for Windows Media Center, as well as Winamp, K-Lite and other Windows multimedia programs. Also works well with Linux

Most, but not all, of the buttons work properly with Linux. This is a problem with most MCE remotes on Linux, but again, the Rosewill RRC-126 has only a few buttons that don't work

Great Case

 

Bought this to add to an HTPC that I put together from spare parts. The remote works well. The wireless receiver is a bit too large for front panel installation - it protrudes a bit too far, and, in my case, would likely get knocked off as this HTPC...

Inexpensive ; Easy installation

Wireless receiver a bit clunky for front panel installation ; USB extension cable too short

Great remote! Very happy!

 

I read the reviews stating it's cheap and the buttons are hard to press, but in my experience this remote is fantastic. The quality is better than I had hoped for and I have had no issues with it whatsoever. Works with WMP and XBMC, and Xbox 360....

Slim, ergonomic, very affordable, works great for pc or Xbox

I'm hard pressed to find a 'con' but I suppose the clear IR LED sticking out of the end makes it look cheap, as opposed to the smoked window most remotes have.. Nothing's perfect but no lost points

Is this the best?

 

It works most of the time

At least once a day I have to disconnect the IR dongle from the USB port and plug it back in. I have spent considerable time looking into this issue without success. I also had to tweak the registry to map the green button to the windows key as...
