    Hi guys
    Do you think is possible to use the remote from NSZ-GS7 to control a PC/Laptop? Anybody tried?
    Or even maybe the Chromebox from Samsung?

    Yes. I was able to pair the remote to a (bluetooth enabled) Mac, but only the keyboard side worked (fully) - it was recognized as Sony NSG-MR5-U.

    Did you had to do something on the remote to make it discoverable?
    My PC and also my Chromebox don't seem to find it on bluetooth.

    Yes. while PC scanning... press and hold [Fn] + [Enter] button on the remote side - See this link

    Btw, if it worked, the remote will disconnect from the box.

    Does the trackpad work on a PC/Mac? Meaning can you use the remote as a mouse? Does clicking work?
