Sony is usually very good about having discretes. Have you checked remotecentral.com? If I run across them, I'll post them.

I still use remote potato. Works fairly well. No VPN needed, but bandwidth is usually a big issue. My ISP is only 4MB up, which, while pretty typical, isn't enough to get good quality. I've also...

If you do that, you've just made yourself an HTPC (check out the HTPC forum as well). That can easily be controlled by remote as well. Just get an IR dongle and possibly an RF remote if it's not line...

I can't recommend any RC6/MCE because none worked consistently for me. But Rosewill, HP, Lenovo, etc. are popular. Maybe someone else can recommend one known to sleep/wake properly.

Chinavision won't wake. Get a different dongle, Ortek or MCE (RC-6). In my experience Ortek is the most reliable for wake. MCE ones are hit and miss.
