D-Link Intros Boxee Remote Control for Mac and PC
Wednesday, July 6, 2011
Posted by: Staff

D-Link today announced the availability of their Boxee Remote Control, giving Mac and PC users the remote previously only found with the Boxee Box by D-Link. According to the company, the Boxee Remote Control features a sleek, two-sided design with a full QWERTY keypad that works seamlessly with Boxee software. It also comes with a small USB dongle that provides connectivity to your media center Mac or PC.

"The Boxee Remote Control was one of the most talked about advances with the Boxee Box by D-Link. We're excited to bring it to all of the Boxee users who've built customized home media centers and want to get even more out of their Boxee software," said Andrew Kippen, vice president of marketing, Boxee. "For Boxee software users, this remote makes all the difference between a PC experience and one that feels like watching TV. Consumers can literally kick back, relax and control their SmartTV experience from their couch."

The Boxee Remote Control by D-Link is priced at $49.99.

That is a very strange looking remote. One side looks like something inspired by Apple. The other side looks like it was inspired by Microsoft/Gateway/Dell.

Hey this would be cool if someone hacked it for use with plex or even front row sure would give the apple remote a run for it's money.

I was hoping D-Link and Boxee would do something like this. Very Happy

Will be ordering one on Amazon asap. They have them for $40.
