"Moral of the story is, I'm watching PCU on my Raspberry PI, being controlled by my Android - do you guys understand what's going on? Do you understand how much this changes the game for LinuxMCE? I'm just asking. Just asking questions here".

....is probably the best thing I have heard ever.

Good on you.

Cheers,
Matt.

Neat!  I have one tv that passes d-pad (but not ok or back) and passes play/ff/rew but also does other things with those buttons at the same time.  Weird.  My other cec tv is a panny and has the same results you describe.  Thanks for testing!  I hope to continue to extend the cec adaptor to add external device control.

wow, why is this all the way over here.

qorbiter has an audio player built in to it.

sounds like some wires got crossed somewhere. please bring your concerns to the testers thread in users and we can discuss this more.

...I should also add that in terms of "feel", every device I've tried feels different (in terms of cursor movement). You always get used to it eventually I find.

I have tried several cheap gyro mini keyboards, and found this one ticks all the boxes for me. 14 quid.

Slightly weird is that the buttons are swapped, but when you are using it it kind of makes sense (closer to your thumb). Battery lasts nearly forever. F keys are all there and don't require shift/function to be pressed. Good range. Also has a card slot in case that's useful for you. My only gripe is that it doesn't have a laser pointer, but to be fair it's only the cats who suffer.

If its for a RaspberryPi based MD, why don't you try the latest CEC control that phenigma and tschak implemented?

That remark was more to specify the pricepoint. Also then you lack the airmouse. However for that setup with a tv that supports it it is probably the best and easiest solution. I try to find the best remote price quality wise for lmce instead of just fixing my own situation. I noticed that while having a joggler, android tablet and phone at hand the airmouse (gyration remote) is still the device mostly used; its flexible regarding location but always at hand, almost always charged and fast. Best would be if we can find a device that does the job below well or around the $20 mark. I ordered that remote so will try it when it arrives.

more suggestions still welcome....

That seems a bit overpriced and over featured. Especially compared to an md price for a rpi ;-). I ordered the first one which is only $14 and will see if it does a better job then the Mele F10

any more suggestions welcome

hi phenigma,

This is a awesome addition to the wonderfull RaspberryPi based MD.
On my Panasonic plasma the d-pad, ok-button, the red/gre/yel/blu buttons and the seek buttons work.
On my Samsung LED, the above and play/pause/stop/seek of the mediacontrol-section on the remote also do work.
Will keep on testing :)
Thanks to phenigma and tschak!

br,
Raymond
