I know im going to get some sarcasm, and some links to the search page but I have searched for last two or three days now and cant find the answers, either because no one has asked them or I'm being stupid.
Whats the deal with media center remote controls? I'm knew to them and their ways. Do they all match a standard? how different are chipsets etc? I ask because I want to setup Linux MCE (which btw looks amazing guys, im well excited and will be helping friends get them setup if this goes well) on a budget then get better parts over time. The remote Im looking at is http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/New-Slim-PC-USB-Media-Center-Remote-Controller-pc41p_W0QQitemZ160178445081QQihZ006QQcategoryZ51086QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem
TBH the first one to me is nicer as its slimmer. I have looked for a HCL and can't find one that goes into much detail. Is there any way to find the chipset from this info (i know its a long shot but sometimes people amaze me with little tricks).
I know Nvidia are much more linux friendly, but I have an old ATI Radeon with mATX mobo and bits laying around which would be nice to use (as they are all free), if not its a new graphics card, which will be PCIe, which will need a new CPU, looking at £110 ish.http://blogs.gnome.org/rodrigo/2007/08/31/linux-media-center/
makes the Radeon 7000 sound like an easy option, if not has anyone any bookmarks to a nice guide?
Any info or links would be great.
PS - Nice work on the Wii remote project, sounds brilliant and would be amazing to use !!
