    I'd be grateful for some urgent advice re. IR remotes. A mate of mine has taken his PS3 on holiday with him, but forgot to take a controller! He only wants to watch videos on it, so was going to buy a cheap IR remote (he already has the official Sony remote - at home). However, do you need a paired PS3 controller to set-up the IR remote, or will it work as soon as you plug in the USB dongle?

    Anyone know? He's out shopping now, so any quick advice would be great.

    Thanks.
