    I bought a Microsoft MCE remote clone off eBay back in March 2011.
    It's now dying and I need another but they seem very thin on the ground, mostly dubious condition second hand on eBay.

    Anyone bought a good one recently from a recognised supplier or from an eBay seller you'd recommend?

    I've been using an MCE compatible HP Media Centre Remote model 5070-2586 there seem to be plenty available on eBay for around £10, I can't recommend a particular vendor though.

    Thanks - they're both good suggestions. I've bought a "new" Sony one from eBay which has turned up and is pristine. I'll see if I can get on with the ergonomics of it.

    @cjed do the buttons around the arrow keys work well or do you find you're pressing them by accident?
