Remote Controls

You can use a mouse and keyboard to get around Windows Media Center, but the best way to experience Media Center is with a remote control. There are many types of Media Center remote controls available to buy, with a variety of options. If you purchased a Media Center PC or a TV tuner, a remote control might have even been included with it. You'll also need a receiver for the Media Center remote control to work properly. Most Media Center remote control receivers are separate infrared (IR) devices that connect to your computer's USB port, but some use Bluetooth or radio frequencies instead. If your computer came with a remote, the infrared receiver might be built in to the computer. If you purchased your Media Center remote control separately, it probably came with an infrared receiver that you can connect to your computer's USB jack.
