You will need to get a genuine MCE Remote kit because the IR Receiver for
the KB is not included. The KB is sold assuming you already have the remote
and therefore have the receiver. The remote kit can either be the MS one or
an OEM, but it needs to be the actually MCE remote/receiver compatible
combo. Newegg sells them for around $30, maybe less on fleabay.
However, if you only want to control the PC, you might do better buy some
other wireless KB/Mouse kit. The MCE one is IR (to integrate it with the
remote), most other ones are RF, so they have better range. Also, the mouse
"stick" on the keyboard is marginal, at best; it is a little tricky to use
for lots of mousing around on the screen. Otherwise the KB is very slick in
it's interface to MCE.
MS says the KB is only for MCE 2005 or later, but I don't know if anyone has
been successful on an earlier version.
