Hey all,

I've recently got a HD DVD kit for my xbox and with it came the media remote and i was wondering if there's a way this can be used with my Inspiron ? There is a IR port on front, which having searched a bit into this seems to have the HID component which is required for consumer IR. I've reinstalled my laptop so not sure fi there's something i've missed out. Has anyone had any experiance with this?
I think you may need the microsoft IR receiver in order to use the 360 remote.

Failing that there is some software called intelliremote 2.0 where you can map keys extra and add in macros etc. This may be an option, you can download as a trial to see if it resolves your issues and "donate" which is compulsary to remove the annoying box that comes up after every remote button press.

Here is the link
Cheers :) I'll give that a go when get back from work:)
