Hi everyone. I'm Mike.

I have a Speed MCR-1049 IR Remote control and IR Receiver that I bought as a set. They worked fine in Vista, but have lost the functionality of the skip and replay buttons (my favourite ones for skipping thru ads).

I borrowed a friend's Microsoft one (Remote and IR Receiver) and they work fine.

So I am thinking I might need a driver or a new remote. I can't seem to find where to get a driver for this Speed remote.

Anyone else have one of these remotes?

Windows 7 x86

Running 7100 x86 here and no problems with the MCE remote so far. The remote also worked in build 7000 and 7068 without problems.
