Something like THIS is your best option IMO. Running an HTPC is an exercise in frustration on a universal remote. A universal remote is fine for basic playback control, but it's hard to navigate and hard to type using nothing but a number pad and arrow keys.
My 2 cents.

is'nt a wireless mouse suffient for viewing videos? or are you renaming files requiring a keypad like are you using this HTPC as a regular PC?
or are you just wanting to power the HTPC on and off w/ a remote?
just curious what a remote for a HTPC is used for.

Does use the same wireless frequencies that say a cordless house phone uses? In other words if I'm reading this right it isn't IR, so I don't need to worry about having line of sight access.
What is the range of "this" device and does the signal go through walls pretty easily?
I'm impressed with its size, the fact that it has a keyboard, and its low price.

A remote is used to navigate Windows Media Center. WAF is much higher using a remote than having to pull out a mouse and/or keyboard, especially when the remote is universal and turns on the TV and AVR set to the correct input with the keys mapped for easy WMC navigation.

Hello Bryan ? what is WAF?
I have been messing around a little w/ WMC and XBMC (XBMC not working liked I'd hopped ).
yes I intend on using the Harmory 700 to power on and off the PC, AVR, sub then just use a mouse.
