Mantaâ„¢ Mini IR Receiver for HTPC, Media Centers and Media Players

Manta Mini is fully supported on Boxee Box, Windows and Linux systems for use with your universal remote and favorite software.

If you have a Mac, buy our Manta Mini Bundle for the Apple Remote which includes the receiver and Mira software to control all your apps.

You can now easily integrate your Boxee Box or Kodi/XBMC, Plex or SageTV systems, including the Raspberry Pi, with the rest of your entertainment system using your favorite remote, whether it be a Logitech Harmony, Philips Pronto, URC Complete Control or any other remote that supports a "WMC / MCE" (Windows Media Center) device.

No drivers need to be installed as Manta Mini is natively supported by Boxee Box, Windows and Linux. Direct support for your remote will be available in most popular media playing software. With customization software you can also extend remote support to any (and every) application on your computer.
