Hi All, I've been contemplating how best to make sure users don't buy Flirc is it doesn't suit their needs, equally encouraging them to buy it if it does. To this end I think it would be a great idea to involve the great community here on the forums so you can chime in with your pro's and cons. Ideally i'm trying to make it easy to skim through and read so request we all use the same basic template: Giving something to easily read through. Note: This isn't a requests, support or questions thread - please start a new thread for these. Any posts will be moved out by Myself, Jason or Digitalb0y Pleasant regards, Chris
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.
