I just installed windows 7 on my late 2009 mac mini 2.26 Ghz 2 gb ram

I'm planning on running windows media center, i have a lot of question.
Will i be able to use the IR with any windows remote? better yet will it even work? My bluetooth didnt work i had to manually install the apple driver on top of the Generic bluetooth driver.

If if does work which one can you recommend?

also i would like to buy two tv tuners so i can record one show while i watch another show with windows media center. will the mini handle two hd tunners? if so what can you guys recommend?

Also i have the freshes bootcamp drivers, but when i ran windows update the nvidia and the broadcom wifi card showed up as optional updates, i ran then and at the end it gave me an error saying that they could not install, has anybody been able to go fix that?

also what are some good windows media plugins.

i been a long mac user so im kinda few years behind on the windows side since i stopped using it, but i feel that this would be a much better option for me. I have been running Plex on the mac side, i thought about buying elgato tuners and software but i read some reviews how it is some what unstable.

anyways it seems like windows media center is pretty easy to use without the need of a mouse and keyboard, i just need to find the right remote.

thank you.
