    Does it include the drivers/software?

    One other question, does it only work with Media Centres only?

    i have a media center and the remote is a usb detected device that emulates key presses (eHome controls) so it should work with all flavours of windows although the media center specific (green button) controls will have no relevance in a non media center environment.

    Well I think if I had the option of installing Media Centre / Center 2005 I would do it, even tho I am perfectly happy with my current system. It would mean I could hook it up to my TV better, but not only that when the Xbox media extenders arrive in this country I will be all set.

    Attacking eBay now to try and get a copy ;D
    Will nip out tonight to PC world and buy a tv card or 2... is there is a list of compatible tv cards anywhere?

    I do believe that most tv cards have the RCA/phono connections. Not much help when it comes to auto detect/switch, like you would experience on a 21-pin scart connection on the tv. But at least it's something that enables you to connect your Sky box to your pc I guess.

    My Sky box has an RF output so will use that for now.

    Will hopefully get the remote tomorrow, perhaps the os.
    No idea what to do then.

    Hoping I can somehow get a signal from my skybox to the input of whatever tv card.
