htpc remote

helping someone look for a remote one would use for an htpc (home theater pc). RF would be nice but IR is good too. usb connection for the receiver preferred. ideally we're looking for one with a directional pad so you can contol the cursor and basically do away with the mouse entirely.

SoundGraph has the iMON which is IR and the receiver is sort of ugly.

ATI has the Remote Wonder but it's getting old and it's not clear if it only works with radeons or not.

and they're both kinda pricey. anyways, it'd be nice to find some other options. thanks. }:>
ATI will be having a new version of the Remote Wonder out soon. May be out already
I can highly recommend stuff from

I've used it in corporate conference room installs and works great.
I can pledge for the ATi Remote Wonder. I love it.

The Remote Wonder II won't be available in any quantities for a while.
Also it doesn't really seem too dated. ATi is continuing driver development, and the remote works in a wide variety of programs! it's also RF... great product
oh, so the remote wonder II is still very new and that's why it can't be found. i assumed it only came with new AIW cards. do we know if the first RW works with any video card? i would think it would but ATI says, "Compatible with all RADEON graphics products", though it doesn't list a radeon in the requirements.

thanks for the link, dreamliner... and for the testimony, goatman.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?
