Default Mediagate MCE Remote problems

So one of these arrived today.

NCIX.com - Buy Mediagate Windows Vista MCE Infrared Remote Control for Home Premium & Ultimate Black - GP-IR01BK In Canada.

I plugged 'er into my HTPC (P4P800SE 2.8 Northwood 1g ddr and an HD2600Pro) running Win 7 RC X86, and no matter what I tried the pause/play FF etc. buttons don't work. The up/down and "ok" do, but no "back"
It works perfectly on my main rig running Win 7 X64 as well as my son's rig running Win 7 X86.
On all the machines windows installed the software automatically and it's recognized as a Microsoft eHome Infrared Transceiver. I even copied the driver from my son's rig to mine and no go.
Tried usb legacy on auto and off in the bios with no change.
Any ideas before I spend a bunch of money I don't have on a new HTPC rig?

Note**** The first time MCE had run on the other 2 machines was after the remote was set up, could this have something to do with it?

OK, shortest thread ever. After most of the day mucking about and countless wasted hours googling, I found the problem on my own. I had to move the jumpers for the usb power to the +5VSB position on the mobo.
All is well, as you were.
