Do you have any devices like the ones I highlighted in yellow?

Some tuners have a separate driver for the remote. Did you check the website for an updated driver?

You might check some of the advice and links in this thread:ehome remote

Re-run the Media Center wizard and see if you get lucky.

For what it's worth, my experience with Media Center and remotes is that it is very picky. On the other hand, my main problem was getting it to play along with my cable box. The remotes I have work fine for browsing pictures and whatnot.

You're sure narrowing down the possibilities.

The free shipping is alot easier than the C.O.D.

Do you have a bank account? you could set up a paypal account with that.
