Mouse and keyboard for media center
« on: January 30, 2010, 05:47:05 AM »
What mouse and keyboard would you recommend for media center? I had a look at Logitech Dinovo Mini but it is too small (at least it looks so in the beginning). What else?

Maybe you should think about buying a Wireless Mouse and Keyboard

I would prefer Microsoft Wireless Comfort Desktop 5000

Or any other

I went for Wireless Entertainment Desktop 7000. Looks nice but keyboard doesn't come with rechargeable batteries. BTW what is the warranty on this product in Europe. Microsoft website talks all good things but no information on the warranty.

Prima facie I am not satisfied with Wireless Entertainment Desktop 7000 and would like to have a product from Logitech. I would prefer chargeable keyboard and mouse.

I love the look of Logitech Dinovo Mini but don't see function keys. The store is unable to confirm me how I can manage to handle function keys or it can be managed.

Google search reveals that it can be mapped but key mapping will not enable to go to BIOS. Any suggestions how function keys can be handled.

Don't know much about Key Mapping because I don't use Keyboard function keys.

This is a software for Microsoft Keyboards

IntelliType Pro 7.1

About Media Center,

Why don't you think about using a remote if the reason behind your media center is to watch media?

Maybe some other Avast users will help you out  8)
