I would assume Broadband dongle (the usb mobile broadband modems), but I could be wrong.

DO u have a tv tuner, and can i also get the model number of ur computer.

I got a Vista Premium with TV Tuner. It came with a large remote and IR dongle. I do not use these on my laptop since the little expresscard remote works just fine and more portable then a dongle and a huge fullsize remote.
Has anyone has success on using this dongle and remote on an XP Pro system. Currently it does not find drivers for the dongle when I plug it in. I know ity was designed for MCE 2005 but there must be a way. Thinking about using MediaPortal on my XP Pro sytem which supports MCE remotes but I can't get past the install of the dongle at this time. When I plug it in it is detected as "BB+ Dongle ..." and never finds any drivers anywhere. Is the HP remote /dongle combo same as official MCE remote/dongle? What is the trick in getting it to work?
