I initially tried to use the MCE (USB) as the default remote since the Vaio isn't listed. a few of the buttons worked but most didnt, ie channel up down caused a replay but "ok" does do select. I could not find any info to indicate if the MC1 was made by a different vendor and remarked Sony Like with much of Sonys speakers. Is there a direct Vaio RM-MC1 is the same as "****"?
