    • A. the only cable that comes in the box is the infred usb cable that is connecet to pc. this allows the user to remotely access the pc from anywhere in the room. depending on how large the room is the cable can narrow the length between remote and pc.. the remote will not control TV. the remote only controls pc programs.

    • A. The cable connects to your PC through a USB connection and has a remote eye on the end that receives the signal from your remote which controls your PC.

    • A. This remote will only control the computer. It is not universal. Comes with usb cable receiver to interperate the signals from the remote.

    • A. The included cable is for an "eye" that receives the signal from the remote. You plug the cable into the USB slot and then set the "eye" somewhere that the remote can see it and you are set. As for the second part of your question, the remote controls the PC, not the monitor. So if you have a tv hooked to your PC, the remote will still control the PC.

    • A. I do know know how this relates to the hand vac but I do have an Adesso remote control for Windows Media Center and it does work on volume pc and has a mouse but hard to control. On the cable that is probably for the electric eye or sensor for the remote.

    This is a great remote worked right out of the box it fits good in the hand buttons are easy to push. The range is good. The only drawbacks are: I wish it was backlit and to get perfect operation you have to point the remote directly at the reciever.

    Useful remote for Windows Media Center. The mouse part is difficult to use. The unit does what it was hired to do. I haven't tried music or anything else. Based on what I use it for I would recommend this remote.

    If you own a windows media center computer this thing rocks. Also it functions as a 10 ft interface for the new hulu desktop app and boxee media center app if you have that app on your computer. Has a built in mouse cursor ,although not as good as a real mouse its not that bad. A good vmc remote and cheap when I purchased.

    There are no seperate drivers to load, like a keyboard or a mouse it should just be recognized and install. So it is likely it will either work, or it won't. It did not work on my Home Theatre PC (HTPC), which is the only PC that I need it for. I would get some Device not recognized error. I also tested it on my laptop, it worked fine on my laptop. I don't want or need it for my laptop, so it really is of no use to me. I can neither recommend it or not recommend it. This is a buyer beware situation.

    Plugged it in and started using it...that's it! Incredible way to control your PC from across the room (or another room if you extend the USB cable).

    Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

    This remote is great! I have it installed on windows 7 64 bit and had no trouble. It just worked and I don't even have to point it directly at it. I can put my laptop to sleep and wake it with the power button on the remote. There's also a button to open media center. The touchpad on it might take a little getting used to for some, but if you are used to presentation remotes, this will be no trouble. Great Product and great price!

    Using it for an HTPC Windows 7 running Media Center. Seems to be working just fine. Having the mouse control is a plus too. You can control the mouse cursor, and there's a button for a left click and right click.
