Scaleo E poor IR reception..

I've had and used this thing for a long time and one of the reasons I've not thrown it out is that it's always worked really well for me! One thing that had bugged me from the start though is the poor IR reception. It was fine when the PC was within range but after my wife insisted in moving stuff a...

Re: Yet another keyboard problem...

I returned the keyboard and replaced it with a decent one from Novatech and it's all working fine. It probably makes sense to disable the onboard IR but to be honest I can't be bothered as it all seems to be working now!

Yet another keyboard problem...

After struggling with the horrendous touchball on the keyboard for years, my young daughter removed the bezel ring on the rollerball and promptly lost it! After a few days of chasing the ball across the floor every 15 mins, the ball also got lost. I went to Maplins and got one of their mini keyboard...

Re: Graphics card compatibility?

OK, so if I get a GeForce 8400 GS for my Scaleo E, can I use it's VGA out - I'm using a TV with a VGA in (I dont have HDMI). I found the GeForce 8400 GS for £32 so it's pretty tempting!

Re: Insane Keyboard Problem

Yup, I can confirm this. I thought it was crap in the ball / rollers but it's not. The damn thing's just really unresponsive when moving to the left and it drives me crazy. Sounds like a generic problem or a bad batch :(. Sorry I can't suggest a solution but anyone has one, I'd love to know about it...

LOL. I was gloating and didn't see it coming...

Ok, I DID have it all working but the only thing I didn't have was the Away mode sorted out. I downloaded the driver and installed it then realised that it was just doing the same as Sleep (as far as I could tell) so I uninstalled it. It rebooted and the keyboard and remote have stopped working! Win...

Scaleo E & Vista. Is it worth it?

I have a scaleo E with XP Media Centre installed. It finally seems to all be working perfectly but I'd really like to add / replace the hard drive with a bigger one. I was wondering if it would be worth it to install Vista Home Premium instead of XP MCE. What exactly are the advantages (if any)? I'v...

Scaleo E remote control problem

I just (a couple of days ago) got a Scaleo E and am having a couple of problems with it! The remote control seems to have a pretty pathetic range - around 6ft at best! I've changed the batteries but it seems to make no difference at all. Is this normal? Can I do anything to improve it and if not, ca...
