First thanks eskro for suggesting Flirc on XBMC forums and thanks to you for making such a little beautiful product. I've tried so many remote mini keyboards and IR receivers that I've given up on trying and settled for a full size wireless keyboard to control the XBMC. That is until I found out about Flirc and eskro's enthusiasm made me order one. So here it is my little retreat corner. XBMC box is a i3 530 CPU on some ASUS main board with 2GB ram and a 32G SSD running Xbmc Live in Linux. For audio and video I use a passively cooled Zotac GT210. Box is a standard and cheap mATX case with a silent Corsair PSU. The other bits include a Samsung 55" LCD, Denon AVR-1909 with Monitor Audio BR2-AV Speakers, Apple Airport Express for AirPlay, PS3, X360 and Wii. For lighting the room I used warm white LED strips controlled by a 3ch IR controller. All devices are hidden inside open back cupboards with absolutely no wires in sight. Everything is controlled with just 1 remote (thanks to Flirc :P), a Harmony 700. Here it is, ducktaped to the side of the case, until I'll find a more elegant solution. Thanks to remote wake-from-sleep, I don't need to open that door too much so it could be a while. And with season decorations.
