Windows 7: Is the Microsoft Media Center remote still good for Win7x64?

Is the Microsoft Media Center remote still good for Win7x64?

I'm thinking about buying this unit to get TV: Hauppauge Computer Works : WinTV-HVR-2250

I don't need to get the remote do I? The remote that came with my Dell (Vista) works when plugged into the new machine... I'm going to set the TV up through Media Center anyway, right?

Thanks. Novice with computers.

ok if i understand you correctly ,you are saying you have installed the driver for the remote that you had for vista and the remote works for you in windows seven ( thats exactly what i did) if so it will work fine when you install your tv tuner card.

Actually no, I didn't install the driver. I just plugged the receiver in and it downloaded automatically I guess. It seems to pick up a lot of signals (always flashing red) which I don't understand... but it works fine in windows so I guess that's a big yes and I can go ahead and buy that card. Thanks.
