I would highly recommend this to anyone who's considering a remote - I already had two from my old Xbox, and the USB adapter was £5.74 including shipping from this place. Every button on my remote now works, after trying a generic Maplin (VRC1100) remote and an absolutely TERRIBLE PS3 Remote with qwerty (the very worst remote I ever owned, I've bought better 'all-in-one' remotes from the pound shop - awful build quality!), it's nice to go back to the old faithful Xbox remote.
Thanks again for the tut.
