Well, golden didn't have that advice when I posted this originally, just that it worked for him. I spoke with URC tech support twice. Both times their stance was it wouldn't work. In parallels, and when I plugged it in, nothing showed up in device manager at all. It was not listed as an hid device under parallels usb or in device manager. Normally when I plug something in, it gives me a choice of connecting it to either Mac or Windows 7. No such luck with the 780.
I appreciate the personal condescension, however. Glad to know how I choose to run my own business is such a large source of concern and entertainment for you. I'll try to check with you two next time I decide to upgrade my hardware so I can make the choice you'd prefer instead of what's right for me.
For me, I can run parallels without issue for every remote/software I've ever encountered. EXCEPT the 780. I prefer the hardware IMMENSELY. My wife is a professional photographer and we run Adobe software for Mac. The desktops at home are mac (albeit with bootcamp) and her laptops are mac. I'm not acquiring a windows machine just because a few manufacturers decide their going to bury their heads in the sand.
The penetration of mac in the custom a/v world is far more than 5%. When I go to Crestron trainings in Atlanta, Macs are the majority.
Sorry for the long winded post, there's just no reason to insult someone because they're different from you.
