Best xbmc remote to flirc

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Found the best remote to raspbmc, WD TV remote.

Small and easy, even grandmothers can use it now.

 

Full keyboard:

Space = Pause/Play

X = Stop

F = Fastforward

R = Rewind

L = Next Subtitle ( Option-button)

 

S = Power 

ESC = Home

Backspace = Back

Enter = Enter

Arrows (keyboard) = Like arrows on the remote

C = Eject (contextual menu, for safely remove usb device)

 

CloseSquareBracket = Prev (Previous Chapter)

OpenSquareBracket = Next (Next Chapter)

(have to modify keyboard.xml in raspbmc, add "SkipNext" and "SkipPrevious" between the squarebrackets instead of "BigStepForward" and "BigStepBack".

 

Q = Search (Next Audio Track)

(have to modify keyboard.xml in raspbmc, add a new line with "<q>AudioNextLanguage</q>" under FullScreenVideo keyboard)

 

With the arrows, you can even step forward/backward +-30sec and +-10min.

 

 

Thanks in advance

I have this remote and it's great. I wanted a simple to use remote for my wife to use while using xbmc. After I set it up with the flirc she loves it.she uses the option button on the remote to download all her favorite TV shows and watches them whenever she feels like it.

I have setup the whole remote buttons now.

So much easier than my Logitech Harmony I had before, less buttons and smaller, everyone in the family can use it.

 

In Flirc software, I chose Full-Keyboard.

Used the keyboard-letter on the left, and pressed the remote buttons on the right.

If you dont know how to modify the .xml (Free XML Editor software), you can replace the keyboard.xml with mine:

You have to use software like WinSCP or FlashFXP and connect to your raspbmc, to transfer the file.

Address or URL is the raspbmc ip-address.

User Name = pi

Password = raspberry
