I'd be interested to know if you got the remote working out of the box? 
I had a hell of a problem getting my USB to work and it turned out I 
just didn't have enough power being supplied through my USB ports. A 
powered USB hub fixed this up and now the only problem i'm having is I 
cant get the remote working.
