Hi Mike, I've just bought a new laptop with vista home premium. I couldn't
get the remote to work via the laptops built in receiver. The help line for
the laptop, told me that vista doesn't support the philips RC6 protocol. This
struck me as strange, as it's a microsoft remote ! The remote was supplied
with a rather 'large' USB receiver, which I have to use. It's really
annoying, having to cart around it around, and I've also been searching the
net to se if there's a downloadable driver
. Anyone know of one?
