Given the deluge of responses I'll guess not :)

Might take a punt on one anyway - although I don't like the fact it has no dedicated media buttons.

The mouse+keyboard part will work OOB... It could be, that some mapping of keys to simulate the missing media buttons could be worthwhile. Or you could consider something like http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B006OW1J1M/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B006OW1J1M&linkCode=as2&tag=squid09a-20
That has media buttons. Honestly, I believe the biggest factor for if it will be a success is if the quality of movement is good.. If it is quick and precise you will enjoy it. If it is slow and/or unprecise you are going to hate it until it is shelved...

Would read some reviews, and rest assured - USB mouse and keyboard part will work without drivers...

P.S. Please let us know how it goes?

do you have a log of Thom's comments re more code required for four of the buttons?
Would be could to have those captured in the ticket and/or wiki.

here ya go:

Code: [Select]
<esperegu> any guru on mapping/configuring remotes? I want to define a specific button on a remote and have the xev output but cannot seem to figure out what to put into the template. http://dpaste.com/1206214/
<esperegu> I tried media,85,D in the template but that does not seem to do anything
<TSCHAKMac> after adding this, you need to be sure, to reload the router. Is the scan code indeed 85 ?
<esperegu> TSCHAKMac: part of the output of xev when I press the button is in http://dpaste.com/1206214/
<esperegu> TSCHAKMac: it is the middle mouse button (button 2) and key 85
<esperegu> TSCHAKMac: I also tried a mapping like: 4,2=2,176
<esperegu> 5,2=3,176
<TSCHAKMac> uh, no
<TSCHAKMac> you'll need to get more data in this case
<TSCHAKMac> comment out #loglevels in the media director's /etc/pluto.conf
<TSCHAKMac> then killall -9 OrbiterGL
<TSCHAKMac> and grep -rin "GenericHID" /var/log/pluto/XX_name_of_your_launchorbiter.log
<TSCHAKMac> you'll see a scan code when you press the button, hopefully
<TSCHAKMac> use that value.
<esperegu> TSCHAKMac: k. thx. awesome. will do that.
<TSCHAKMac> be sure to uncomment the LogLevels line again, and killall -9 OrbiterGL after all of this, so you don't needlessly log things when you're done.
<esperegu> TSCHAKMac: does not seem to give a code there
<TSCHAKMac> hm ok
<TSCHAKMac> then some code will have to be added to deal with it.
<esperegu> TSCHAKMac: :-(. that easy to do in the template or is that hardcore coding?
<TSCHAKMac> no, it won't be able to be handled in the template
<TSCHAKMac> you'd need to modify Orbiter itself
<esperegu> :-(. outofmyleague ;-)
<esperegu> TSCHAKMac: any chance/way I can supply you with the right info so you could add it one day you are working on the specific part in the code anyway?
<TSCHAKMac> no, it doesn't work that way, unfortunately.
<TSCHAKMac> esperegu: whatdevice is it?
<esperegu> TSCHAKMac: I got an rf03 on ebay: http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/RF03_Air_mouse
<esperegu> TSCHAKMac: I also created a template for it but that does not have all the buttons: http://trac.linuxmce.org/trac.cgi/ticket/1794
<esperegu> TSCHAKMac: is there info somewhere with guidelines on which actions are preferred for buttons on a remote?
<esperegu> TSCHAKMac: (I mean which are the actions best to put behind the buttons in lMCE)
<TSCHAKMac> no, there isn't. The point was to map stuff to what made best sense for the remote at hand on a case by case basis.

Got back to this and have ordered the PRO version, should get it in a week or two from China.
The PRO has a mic+speaker. The USB dongle for kb+mouse also exposes a soundcard.
Will see how it goes...
