Logitech diNovo Mini

Support for these should be added to LinuxMCE.  From what I've read it's Bluetooth 2.0 and the battery lasts about a month.  Would make a great MD controller.

Nice find.

Although I still prefer the n800 as a remote.

As a keyboard times when the MD is hanging it is quite nice.

The Logitech Dinovo works as a keyboard in LMCE. The mouse does not work out of the box.
It does not have F keys, so these need to be remapped.

To get the mouse working, edit /etc/modprobe.d/options and add the following line:
Code: [Select]
options usbhid quirks=0x046d:0xc71f:0x00080000

Hehe... I started looking at this, and found that I can use xev in a KDE terminal to see the button presses...
What I noticed is that all the keys that the FiireChief uses are the same as the Dinovo Mini for Play, Stop, Pause, Vol+-, Record...

I'm running 8.10 Alpha and the Dinovo buttons does not work, but neither does the Fiire Chief...
So for fun I booted 7.10 (I'm using dual boot) and fired up a video, and YES the Dinovo Mini just works!

I can pause, skip and stop. The volume goes up and down...

So I guess editing the options file is the only thing needed to get this baby working :)

The strange thing is that the MCE button does not pass a button press. And I would really like to map the F7 function to the MCE button.
