One problem that I noticed was that the cursor in LinuxMCE resets to the lower left corner as you navigate from screen to screen. Let me explain.
Say I am in the main menu for linuxmce and I tilt my remote towards the right a little bit and click on the floorplan menu. Now that I am in the floorplan menu, I decide that I want to go back to the main menu, so I tilt my remote far right so that I can click on the big X in the top right corner. Now, as soon as I click that X, the screen goes back to the main menu, and the cursor is in the bottom left corner. The problem here is that my remote is still tilted > 45 degrees to the right, and the cursor is at the bottom left..
Hence, I'd have to press the button in the middle of the remote that turns off the gyroscope temporarily, and then rotate my remote to a neutral position, and then let go of the button.
This leads to very clunky controls, and I think that in the next version, when returning to the main menu, the cursor should not be reset to the bottom left..
Does that make sense?
