    Did you upgrade to Windows 8 or did you do a clean installation?

    Something could have gone wrong during the upgrade, if possible I'd recommend a Clean Installation.

    Still not working for me, I'm giving up and hope Dell devotes more resources to getting their software to work properly with Win 8.

    its kinda strange, have any of your tried the r3 OSD driver? It's running perfectly with windows 8 (upgraded from 7) for me. Might be worth a shot.

    When you say it is running perfectly do you mean it does not only work but also show you the animations when you press, say eject key?

    I did a fresh Windows 8 Pro install, installed all the drivers for W8 as per here. I did not install Command Centre and OSD until did all the steps to enable Net Framework Luis suggested, restarted PC and installed Command centre and then OSD. It still does not work properly - volume keys, mute, play buttons, wifi and command centre buttons are working fine, but eject is not working. There are no OSD icons I used to have in Windows 7 except for volume, but those are Windows 8 default and were there even without OSD installed.
