Any reason I need this to control my HTPC running Windows Media Center if I already have a generic USB IR adapter?

This can simulate key presses and may have more control options?

People have a lot of questions about this device.

I have one and am very happy with it. It really provides additional flexibility when you're using a universal remote with kodi or other Android apps.

My harmony hub remote somewhat worked natively but this provided me a much better experience and I was able to program any key function I wanted with several default profiles already set up to use out of the box.

There are cheaper options out there if you're willing to spend more time on getting your stuff to work. If you want something a little easier, catching this on sale is a very good option.

You don't need this for an Xbox or Xbox one since the OEM IR remote is around the same price for each of those and works natively. It would be useful for an HTPC or anything else you want to use an IR remote on that doesn't already have an IR receiver. But, there are sexier remotes for that, too,I and they come with receivers. Bit, if you wanted a computer to execute tasks with a simple IR command, like a pi controlling lights, aquarium equipment, or the like, it would probably do.

I am very happy with this.

You can control many apps as you want like Kodi, Beyond TV....
(I just get a different remote per app (usually at a Goodwill store Smilie ) I wonder if there is a way to do it with one remote for all app on one computer.
