    I have a modded XBox running XBMC and want to get a remote control (so I can program up my iPronto to use it as well). Will any of the XBox remotes work OK - they seem to be region encoded for DVD playback. There are a few for sale on FleaBay.

    Cheers,

    Colin

    xbox remotes are region coded.

    when you buy an xbox it has no region (in terms of DVD anyway) if you bought a region 1 remote and "eye" then it would be locked to region 1. if youbought a region 2 version - you get the idea.

    just buy the cheapest one - if its chipped then it will be multi region anyway.

    there is also an ini file that XBMC uses to set its remote control mapping.
