You didn't look hard enough....*4294207740%7CNINTENDO%20WII%20HARDWARE

Ok...they don't have follow me but frankly don't care about that....and its cooler to
spell ffire as phyre or fyre Phire would have sufficed. Ffire sounds like you got a speech problem.

A common misunderstanding is that an old or underpowered computer can be reused as a video system. Video is one of the most intensive tasks a computer can do today, especially if the video quality is good.

I beg to differ. It takes a lot of processing to encode or reencode on the fly, not to decode.

The issue for MCE's is not the hardware....otherwise you wouldn't be able to pickup a dvd player for £30 at your local store or buy a digital hard disk video recorder for around £80.

Or even a Network Media Player for <£150.....and shows 1080i divx, TS streams too.

Now if you want to record at that requires hardware......but even then.....Sigma Designs SMP8634.....can...other chips can......HD Sat and Cable Cards can without even bothering the processor.

Its all relative......



PS On the original topic, I agree....custom remotes expensive....

Users / UI2 Keyboard Shortcuts ? For Remote Mapping !
« on: August 04, 2007, 05:42:41 pm »
hi all,

Ive found the F Keys but is there no other shortcut keys for Stop Play Pause FF RR Next Last Zoom etc ? Without going via the UI and the Mouse/Remote Mouse or F Keys ?


PS I want to use my ATI remote but I don't want to go through rebuilding the kernel to disable ati_remote....just want to use xmodmap etc.
