Competition: Win a RF Remote for Windows Vista Media Center


Off the back of the ever successful Vista: After Hours tour last month, I've been supplied with a fantastic remote control from Keyspan to give away on the blog.  This remote control is not your standard remote however and works over Radio Frequency which means it can work through walls and furniture.  Why is this useful I hear you say? 

Well, picture all your AV kit nicely tucked away out of sight (including your Media Center) - how does your infrared remote control work?  That's right - it can't!  Now with this remote from Keyspan you can control your media center whether it's hidden away or in another room, up to 90ft away - fantastic.

To Win

All you have to do is tell me your favourite thing about Windows Vista Media Center and email your answer here.  I'll pick my fav answer - so be creative!

I'll be closing the competition on 31st of October at 12 noon GMT so be sure to get your answers in by then!  Good Luck!

    Can we please have a .mov codec on the Vista Media Center without downloading 3rd party software or QT Alterntaive?

    What a pain!

    (I have a Keyspan remote, and it works really well!  Sometimes a little slow, but it’s nice you don’t have to point it towards the computer).

    I like the intergration of the media centers ability to control record all aspects of my AV requirements in one program. This simplifys my needs to have multiple equipment to run different types of media.
