My original intent was to use a zotac mini mb with a m350 case.  The
mb had a usb port that I was going to use a cheap usb receiver and
transmitter.  Make a small cut out for the usb receiver.  Slick neat

Turned out to be a real pain in the @ss.  You had to point the
transmitter at very specific angles to get responses.

That's why I decided to go with the RC6 usb windows media compatible
external receiver.  Still use the cheap transmitter on two of my front

My main TV is controlled using a One for All remote.  Got the link
from somebody in this list.  Have never looked back.
