Hereís the remote control I use. Itís made by a company in Redmond, Washington, and it has three features which led me to choose it:
1. A very small, keychain-sized remote. Other remotes out there designed to control a computer can be the size of a regular TV remote.
2. It runs via RF, which means it uses radio waves to communicate with the receiver, and can transmit through your pocket. A typical TV remote uses IR, or infra-red, and you have to point the remote at your TV
or VCR for it to work. Many inexpensive computer remotes work this way, at much lower prices than this unit, but you have to physically point them at the reciever. I wanted something to hide in my
pocket. Then I could tap a button, and have a music cue play.
3. Itís programmable -- you can set it up so the buttons trigger any keystrokes you need. With two buttons, you can have five different commands.
