Some buttons stopped working, Win Media Center DVR Remote

 

Purchased it Aug 2014, started using it April 2015 (when I finally cut the cord on satellite TV.) Buttons failed March 2016. Would have purchased another of this same remote, but it is no longer offered. The death of WMC might be to blame for this one.

Compact controller, nice button layout. Receiver works as well as my original Dell/Microsoft receiver. I really liked this remote.

Remote has a limited range of about 10 feet; beyond that, it seems to be hit or miss. Play and Pause buttons stopped working after about one year of use. I use the pause button frequently while watching TV, so this remote is nearly worthless now. Green...

Works, that's about it

 

I accidentally broke the receiver while integrating it into my case, but I bought an after market internal receiver and the remote works great with it.

Works

Cheap quality, cheap plastic, feels flimsy, I accidentally broke the IR receiver

Loved it so much I bought a second when on sale

 

I've owned one of these for almost 3 years and just picked up a second one when they were on sale a couple weeks ago for $10. If you use WMC for the HTPC DVR these work great. Cant comment on other programs as I've not tested them outside of WMC

Sleek design Pick up is good with included dongle and wide pointing area, can point in about 180 degree direction of tv and it will still register. Long batter life, My old one lasted over a year with cheap Panasonic Dollar Tree batteries.

There are no cons, Works great with WMC on win 7 64bit. I guess if I had to pick a con I would be hard pressed to come up with one.

Excellent for Linux!

 

Plug and play with my 15 year old Dell pre-built machine I have running Kodibuntu, could not have been easier.

I didn't buy more of these on sale!

Gets the job done

 

Highly recommended.

Still using this after almost 4 years for my HTPC. Tried several, always come back to this one.

If you're using XBMC/Kodi, some of the buttons aren't mapped by default. That's the case with most of these IR remotes, I've found. The important functions work out of the box though.

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 perfectly with WMC

 

Provides all the functions you need on Windows Medica Center. Also very inexpensive so those are the pluses.

buttons are small and has no lights so in the dark if you are watching TV it is difficult to use.
