Only the Cisco 797x can be used as Orbiters for LinuxMCE atm.

This can be done by using the Generic Serial Device, which, other than the name implies, can control stuff using RS-232, InfraRed, and system commands.
I guess that's the piece of information we needed to know: you can not only control your devices by IR and RS232 but also by system commands...
It would be nice to have some functionality whereby if no media has been watched for XX minutes then the amps, active subs etc are turned off.
I know, but I'm using X10, not IR to turn my amps on and off. So no solution for this? Would be great if you could specify an X10 device as the power switch for your amps!
I'd like to make event handlers for motion sensors outside of the house.
I'd like to switch Orbiter to show coresponding camera (easy done with goto screen command), wait for 30 secs (I guess delay command), but then I'd like to switch back to whatever screen Orbiter was showing...
