Microsoft Windows XP Remote Keyboard Media Center Edition

Recommended Posts


is it possible to use Microsoft Remote Keyboard for Windows XP Media Center Edition with osx ?




It has an infrared receiver seen as below:


eHome Infrared Transceiver:


875] ID prodotto: 0x0815

875] ID fornitore: 0x0471 (Philips Consumer Lifestyle BV)

875] Versione: 0.00

875] Numero di serie: PH00H2HO

875] Velocità: Fino a 12 Mb/sec

875] Produttore: Philips

875] ID posizione: 0x1d120000 / 3

875] Corrente disponibile (mA): 500

875] Corrente necessaria (mA): 100



If there is any driver for osx for such device please let me know...(or linux driver that can be compiled in osx) i will update this topic if i will find any information so that other people may find it useful. If i find a driver for IR transceiver it should be ok and enough.

I find this is a nice keyboard for multimedia/media center use and it would be nice to be used under osx (with a proper macintosh too, macmini for example)!
