Keyspan Vista RF Remote

Keyspan today launched the RF Remote for Windows Vista, a simple add-on that turns PCs with Vista Home Premium or Ultimate into impromptu home theater systems. In place of infrared, the use of an RF adapter through USB frequencies lets the remote switch on the Windows Media Center front-end in situations that would otherwise be impossible: the remote works through cabinets and walls that would trip up an IR system, Keyspan says. Its system independence also means that owners can buy the remote while building a homebrew media PC.

The remote controls all DVD, music, photo, and TV playback shortcuts within Media Center and is sanctioned to work by Microsoft itself. Keyspan ships the RF Remote today online and to shops for $49.
