For a long time I’ve been searching for the ideal HTPC remote control. I want a fairly standard remote, but with a QWERTY keyboard on the back, or inside a flip/slide out part. I’ve been tracking the options in an article from Jan-2010, and eventually ordered myself a Boxee remote a few months back. The boxee is an excellent wireless keyboard, but unfortunately, boxee have opted to go the “Apple route” (aka dumbed down) on the non-qwerty side. There are a total of 7 buttons, non of which is a power button. There is also no “back up” type button. This makes the boxee pretty useless for Media Center 7.
