Remote Question
« on: September 06, 2007, 12:55:52 am »
Hi,

I've finally decided to bite the bullet and build myself a LinuxMCE box.

As much as I loved the demo with the gyro fiire remote, $150 is WAYYY out of my budget.

I was wondering, what are some good cheap remotes that you guys use, and have great functionaity/ease of use.

I read around the forums, and a lot of the decisions come down to if you would like a Follow Me button. I'm only going to be using this in one room, so I dont need it.

Please recommend me some remotes. Right now im considering the 70 dollar gyration mouse, but 70 dollars is still a bit pricey, and i was wondering if there were cheaper alternatives. Also, i dont necessarily need gyration, but that would be a plus.

We're using an MCE compatible RC6 IR remote... they will work straight out of the box with either an internal or external IR receiver.
