While you can navigate with the remote, it's very awkward since you are limited to an 8 direction pad for the mouse and no qwerty. Use a smartphone app or wireless keyboard/mouse instead (like a k400).
A remote is more suited to playback and menu navigation (arrows).
There are basically 4 types of dongles for PC - MCE (RC-6), Ortek, Diamond (NEC) and what I call generic. All but NEC can do mouse navigation. The generic ones are the really cheap $6 jobs on eBay. Avoid them at all costs. They use a very strange custom protocol and are missing many core functions, like record.
We have upgrade file for every type for your remote in the JP1file section. You can also get MCE codes from Simpleset.
