Ok you have a laptop with usb ports that has media center on it.
you put the dongle in the usb port and you are in the same room as your tv why would the remote control not operate your tv using voice and manual buttons?
plz explain to me why this would not work? thanks

Hi Wayne,
I'm not sure how familiar you are with Microsoft Media Center,
It can be used for recording TV and displaying an Electronic Program Guide etc, if you have a TV tuner as part of your Media Center PC hardware setup. If you have a TV tuner then you can use the voice control on the remote to select channels, record programs and skip to
a certain time in the EPG etc.

If you don't have a setup that includes a TV card , then you can control just your music and videos that you have on the laptop.

The buttons on the remote are normally used to control the Media Center PC , through a Media Center Infra-Red dongle (not the same as the included Amulet dongle). But it does have the ability to learn buttons, so for example , you typically might teach it the power on/off button of the TV.

hope that helps.
Steve.
