does anyone know if I can configure my Yamaha RAV250 remote control (shipped with Reciver HTR5740) to control media player functions like start, stop, skip, etc. on my laptop?
any other simple solutions to remote control media on my laptop?

Re: yamaha RAV250 remote control for my laptop
No, you cannot use this remote I'm afraid because if you tried to do a manual search with the remote to control something, and it does not work, the code is not in the remote. You cannot make a remote learn a code unless it is a learning type remote. When you do a search with a remote, all your doing is calling up all of the reprogrammed codes already in the remote. As to other media remotes for your computer, you will need to contact the manufacture of the computer. Good Luck

This sounds like this may be an issue with your tv 2, make sure your remote is in sat mode by pressingthe sat button. then select, if still nothing take your remote to the recvr and look on the back of the recvr to make sure the uhf ant. is standing straight up if not, straighten and try remote functions. if you stillg et no responce there could be other issues that are simple to fix depending on what kind of equipment you have. you can call 800-333-3474 for assistance or reply with recvr name or model #.
You need a learning remote or a "Logitech Harmony" or a "Universal Remote Control" (Brand name) Yamaha uses "Discrete Power Commands"
You will not find those in any remote under $70 or $80.00
If you don't want to spend the money, program the Yamaha's Remote to control your devices. It will control all features and functions, it will just take some time to program. Hope this helps
Replace the remote control with a universal remote (e.g. Logitech). It is more advanced and very user friendly with a help function if anything doesn't work.
Just follow the instructions in the unit's manual.
If you drop it; be sure to replace the batteries correctly.
Keep good batteries in it and enjoy the convenience of only one remote.
If still in trouble; just visit your local Yamaha dealer for help.
It sounds to me as if you have a replacement remote rather than the original. Later models will still work, though will look quite different. The DMR-ES10 in the UK was shipped with the EUR7720KM0 remote, whilst the DMR-ES15 was shipped with the EUR7659Y50, for instance. The functions should remain broadly similar, though you may have to hunt a little to find the correct hard/soft key!
Let me know the remote model you have and I may be able to assist further.
