    Media Center remote frustration

    victorypoint Newbie

      Hi folks,


      I just setup a new SOLO and got it working with my Windows 7 Media Center PC.  The problem I'm having is getting the right Sling remote to work.


      When running the config wizard:


      - if I select 'PVR - Microsoft - Media Center', a cool looking remote that looks alot like my Microsoft MCE remote is selected, but it doesn't work with my PC.  I also get to choose my cable provider and channel list with the PVR category.


      - if I select 'Other - Media Center PC' or 'Other - Microsoft - Media Center', I get a big square remote that doesn't look anything like my MCE remote, but it works with my PC.  I don't get to select my cable provider and channel list when choosing the Other category.


      Is there a way I can get the best of both worlds here - get the cool looking remote that actually works?


      Any help is appreciated.
