    Looking for one of these for my system, any recommendations?

    I'd prefer one with an integral mouse trackpad ideally.

    Cheers

    Good point. The problem I have is that my projector is in a different room to my PC. I already have an IR keyboard / mouse, but the cable from the PC is nowhere near long enough. Perhaps I'll buy an RS232 repeater...

    Yes I will have the same problem when I Install a projector and move the equipment into a cupboard next to the room, I was going to use some sort of IR repeater. I haven't looked for any yet but I'm sure <a href="http://www.letsautomate.com" target="_blank">www.letsautomate.com</a> sells this kind of stuff.

    My Airboard has just died. Are there any better alternatives to replacing it with another £22 Airboard?

    Why not use an IR keyboard with an RF receiver/transmitter for those who have "next room" problems.

    Hi,

    Are you sure that you want RF?, most people go for IR so that the keyboard shortcuts can be learned by a universal remote such as the Pronto.
