No, I havnt tried actually. I had such a tough time trying to get the
remote working for my other TV card (Avermedia 771 - for which only
half the buttons worked) that I am hesitant to try. For the time being
I'm using a universal remote with an IR keyboard receiver. I might
give it a go in the next few weeks, when I feel like the agrovation.
