Gyration MCE idea?
« on: October 09, 2008, 05:51:37 pm »
Just saw this on hackaday: http://hackaday.com/2008/10/08/how-to-build-your-own-gyration-media-center-remote/#more-3280
Looks pretty cool, any idea if it would be possible to get it to worrk the same with LMCE?

a new HID handler class would need to be written in Orbiter to handle the various buttons, etc.

I am pretty sure getting the remote functions wouldnt be too hard, since other gyration remotes are being used. The part I was mostly curious about is utilizing the display in the remote to show playback info. I have no intentions of getting one right now, just mostly thought other people might be interested.

I believe Dell stopped selling the RH515.  I looked a while back and couldn't find an inexpensive play to purchase the RH515 which is required to make the remote work.

Dell actually changed the part number to YY993. It's $14.95 + shipping. Just finished modding it for Windows MCE but would love to try it on Linux MCE.
