After the demise of Ricavision, all hopes for a Windows SidesShow remote for Windows Media Center seemed lost (most MCE users were holding out for the RICA100 or VAVE100). Well, folks, Philips apparently stepped up to the plate a while back (May 2007 according to Amazon.com) to fill the niche and didn’t make a big deal about it. In fact, the product only mentions that it’s SideShow capable in the product’s help file. Go figure? In any case, SideShow functionality has been tested by Derek Flickinger and it seems to be working great. The Philips SRM7500 is currently selling for around $110 at Amazon.com and other retailers (list price: $199.99).
