I am getting more and more impressed with Windows 7 the more I use the beta. I was able to get my old ATI Remote Wonder to work in Windows 7 quite easily, something that never happened in Vista (but maybe that was the driver I used).
I downloaded the driver from ATI’s website, performed the install and it added a “Wireless Remote Settings” shortcut in Control Panel under Hardware. One of the items in the new control panel app was to tell which key was pressed, and I was impressed to see it capturing the key press event.
I am now able to use the remote to select songs in Munky Music so I know have all the functionality of Tivo’s music app in my program.
Actually, the remote works a little too well; pressing the Power button on the remote causes the machine to go into Sleep Mode, and I have no way of getting the machine back up without doing a hard reboot. So I just avoid that button. 🙂
