I am pleased with my Adesso SlimTouch Wireless
<http://www.adesso.com/products_detail.asp?productid=281>. It works ten
metres away from the receiver in an adjacent room. It does not need a
special driver and it includes a laptop-style touch pad. Even the
vertical scroll bar on that works with Linux and MythTV. It is small and
light weight which makes it look and feel a bit flimsy but it has
survived an unintended drink of a rough Australian red wine.
The diNovo Mini
is a bit more expensive but it is very good looking and I might choose
it if it worked with MythTV and with the computer's BIOS.
