I have setup my two raspberry pi computers with openelec xbmc. This remote is supported. I plugged the USB IR sender into one of the RPI USB connections and the remote works. I had to go into XBMC System, Settings, System, Input Devices then activate "remote sends keypresses"
This gives the remote more funtionality. Experiment with buttons and mousepad to learn what keys do what. Most are intuitive but others you will have to learn. I do sometimes experience sticky button keys. I have to press again to turn off repeating but otherwise for the price this remote does the job. I have pluged the remote into my windows vista and win7 machines and it works with them as well. Same operation using XBMC on the Windows machines.
OpenElec XBMC also supports CEC but I found the MCE remote is much better than using CEC
For the price a good deal

4.0 out of 5 stars Compatible with Logitech Harmony Dec 19 2013
Verified Purchase
I do not really care about its quality, I just wanted the IR receiver since I have a Logitech Harmony. It was not easy to find it in the Harmony software, but now that I found it, I would like to share. In case anyone here has a Harmony remote and is in doubt about purchasing it, you will find the model as
Manufacturer: ORTek
Model: VRC-1100'

Simply plug the receiver in a USB port, and voila! Did not try the TV related buttons, but video and audio playback works great.

4.0 out of 5 stars Decent product for use with Harmony One and XBMC Nov. 7 2011
By BigKens
I purchased this remote to use with my Harmony One remote and my home theatre PC (HTPC) running XBMC. I initially bought the Mediagate MG-IR02BK but it didn't work (I assume I just got a defective unit).

This remote works reasonably well, and all I had to do was plug in the USB IR receiver into the HTPC...nothing to install and the drivers loaded automatically on Windows 7 Ultimate (64-bit). There is a very slight delay when using this with the Harmony One and XBMC, but it's definitely not a deal breaker.

The only thing is that the remote sends a combination of keyboard presses, mouse movements and Windows MCE commands. The i (info) button, when pressed, sends a right mouse click; however, you can't keymap that to any XBMC action. I hear other people have successfully used EventGhost, but I never tried that. Also, when I added the remote to my Harmony One devices list, I had to list it as "Ortek VRC-1100".

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for XMBC on OUYA May 9 2014
Verified Purchase
Got this basically to use as an IR receiver for my OUYA XBMC experience. Worked great. The remote is decent too... but I use mine with a programmable universal remote, so the remote sits in a drawer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Awesome little remote for a cheap price Jan. 16 2014
Verified Purchase
I bought this remote at first only for the IR dongle, which is compatible with my OUYA console and lets me use my logitech harmony remote control with the OUYA and XMBC on it. I must admit I wasn't expecting much from the remote itself but all in all it is the perfect solution to my problem and the remote works remarkably well.. It is not backlit though so usage in dark areas is almost impossible. But plug and play windows/android compatibility makes this a no brainer for any htpc setup requiring a cheap but functionnal ir receiver.

This is exactly what I needed for my Windows 7 HTPC running Plex, It's simple, straight forward and does exactly what it should right out of the box. It's so simple in fact that after showing my 5 year old how to move the mouse cursor and where the "Mouse buttons" are, she uses it proficiently as both a remote control and mouse replacement.

I like it so much, in fact, I've just ordered a second one for the HTPC I'm building for the bedroom.

This remote is plug and play with win 7 64bit. receiver works well, i don't have to point this remote or my harmony remote directly at it. receiver does light up when receiving commands, it is a bit distracting in a dark room. worked out of the box for xbmc very happy. used the remote to program my harmony 650 remote then put in a drawer, remote did feel good in my hands, mouse function did work surprisingly well, but i thought it was a bit awkward to hit the left click button, definitely not a replacement for a wireless mouse but i imagine you could get used to it pretty quickly. keep in mind that this is not a rc6 infrared receiver so it is limited in the commands it can receive if your planing on using it with other universal remotes. overall a very good deal for the price.
