I've tried a number of remotes with the fusions reciever and have had mixed results.

My akai remotes (both TV and video) worked fine. My Loewe on the other hand behaved very strangely, codes were received but weren't consistent.

Same occured with my universal learning remote, the codes learnt from the akai's were OK, but the Loewe was weird.

Not too sure about the inner workings of the fusion reciever, so it seems to be a case of try it and see.

By the way, I just got a converter cable to allow me too use an XBox controller on a PC, and the HID Remote plugin picks it up OK.
