IMHO that's not a very good remote for myth... I have virtually the same
remote (same design, some different buttons up top), and was dissapointed to
find out that the '4-way' pad is actually a 16-way 'mouse' directional pad.
It's very hard to configure/use as an up/down/left/right control because of
this. It's great for mouse input, horrible for Myth control...
I highly recommend using a Microsoft MCE remote. It will cost you a
little more, but you won't be disappointed with it. Search ebay for
"(microsoft,MCE,media center) RC6" for the best results... And if you don't
have an IR receiver already, look for one that includes it. (It will work
with a 'generic serial' IR receiver if you have one)
Just my 2cents...
