    I currently have a Netshooter remote from six years ago. It doesn't work so well anymore. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. I think the move from Windows 95/98 to XP hasn't helped.

    Is there any better remotes than can work with PowerDVD 6. I wouldn't mind one that has specialist custom buttons for PowerDVD's functions.

    Can any of them work of a USB port?

    Thanks.

    I am using a StreamZap remote with Cyberlink DVD 6 and it appears to work ok, although I have only had it for a day!

    You can check applications functionality here:-

    http://www.streamzap.com/support/remotehelp/PCRemote.htm

    It uses an IR sensor which plugs into a spare USB port, the driver supplied on the accompanying CD was slightly outdated the latest driver is available on the StreamZap website.

    The cost was £23.50 plus postage from a UK dealer.

    Does anyone know if the ATI Remote Wonder will work with PowerDVD 6?

    I like the idea of a radio controlled remote.

    There is a good review of the ATI Remote Wonder II at the following website:-

    http://www.remotecentral.com/index.html

    They also have various forums so you might be able to find the answer to your question there.

    If you do a search on Google it comes up with a lot of hits on the ATI, also in certain quarters it is also known as "BOB II" !
