IR / RF Remote Controls for Windows: Links to Explanations, Tutorials, and Guides
#1
Information 
Unfortunately most remotes for Windows do not currently work with XBMC Media Center straight out-of-the-box. If you would like to know why, the following is a simple and informative explanation.

How MCE Remotes work in Windows, and why they don't immediately work out of the box.

Beginning with SVN Builds created after 9.11 Camelot, support for MCE Remotes that send keystroke combinations (such as ALT+S) is build in; however, a custom keyboard XML must be created to take advantage of these keystrokes. In the next few weeks and months expect changes to the Wiki on the subject of remotes to handle these issues. With luck most MCE Remotes should work out of the box (or close to it) with the next official release of XBMC.

Below are some tutorials for getting your remote control to work with XBMC for Windows. Additionally, the above link contains a few methods that do no include installing either IR Server Suite, EventGhost, or any other additional software.

Available tutorials and HOW-TOs to setup/configure remote controls for XBMC on Windows:


Also checkout these other ways for controlling XBMC:


Good luck!
