Sanyo Projector Remote

Hello,

I have a Sanyo projector, model PLC-XU355.  The remote that comes with it has the built-in capability to control a presentation on the attached computer.  Well, the remote does not work with Windows 8.  I have searched for a long time trying to locate a solution but have ended up here in desperation.  Can someone please help me out?

Thanks,
Cheese

David,

Thank you for your post.  I will try your suggestion once I dig out of my current assigned tasks.  Just to be clear, the issue I am having is with the remote (clicker as it is sometimes called) for the projector not playing nicely with Win 8.

Thanks,
Mike

Well, I tried this today and no go.  The hardware id of the device is USB\VID_0474&PID_0800&REV_0001.  Any ideas?

Thanks,
Mike

David,

Yes, I did see that link when researching.  However, I don't know about you, but I really don't want to install a driver support piece of software to acquire the driver.  Can you verify the legitmacy of this site and it's contents?  Have you downloaded anything from here before?

Thanks,
Mike
