Hey all,

i recently purchased the Microsoft Wireless reciever for windows (Vista), and its really good, specifically on kane and lynch. However i remember seeing a video somewhere of someone controlling there vista desktop, moving mouse up, down etc using nothing more than the wireless 360 controller, does anyone know how this is done, i tried using a program called XPadder or something like that and i could not get it to work. Any help would be great.


Well my pc is my Media centre aswell, but i dont have the media centre remote. I Watch movies at a distance from the pc so the 360 controller would service for basic changing movies, tv shows etc.
If you have a 360 it can connect to a vista media centre. Not sure about an xp media centre.

Transcoder360 ( will let you playback any movie on the xbox360 too.
I have seen it used to demonstrate the downloadable version of
and rather cool on a UK Army advert the other day for UAVs.
