    Not to sure were this belongs.

    But I’m after a remote for my htpc. I do use a k400r keyboard. But a simple remote would also have its advantages. Ir or Bluetooth ect would work.

    Search "media center remote" on ebay/aliexpress and have a look. Any remote that sticks to the MCE standard will pretty much universally work.

    This is how I found my current remote ~8 years a go, it's starting to wear out though and I'm leaning toward https://flirc.tv/more/flirc-usb which lets you map any remote to PC functions, however there is still the problem of finding a comfortable remote with the right buttons for you to map.

    Logitech harmony remotes with bluetooth work well. Also less remotes to handle.
