I tried to use Windows 8 on a HTPC and i'm struggling with being able to navigate the start screen without using a mouse/keyboard.
The Xbox 360 controller doesn't work (real missed opportunity?!) and i'm wondering is it possible to set it up to run from a TV remote control, in the same way you can control a raspberry pi/raspbmc with a tv remote via hdmi?
Essentially what I would like to be able to do is use a controller to navigate the start screen to load either steam/netflix etc. Is there a solution?
