  • TiVo Slide Remote

    Anyone else think CarPC remote as soon as they saw this thing?



    It finally hit brick&mortar retail this week, picked one up yesterday. Still playing around with it, but it's a bluetooth remote with built-in learning IR capabilities. So ideally, it'll replace the RF ATI Wonder remote that I've been using for years to control my music, the IR remote for my alpine headunit that's hidden away, and my Gyration RF keyboard, all in one small (but not too tiny!) remote. Haven't learned the IR codes from my alpine remote yet, but I've got it up and running in Girder 3.3 with just the HID plugin, so so far, works great as a keyboard and a pc remote.

        Yeah, the only shortcoming of the keyboard is the lack of ctrl/alt keys. Also, the build of the BT stack that I'm using (BlueSoleil) in windows for .net Bluetooth Mobilephone Plugin (RR plugin) doesn't seem to be consistently initializing the remote, so the remote keeps falling back to IR mode. Going to have to play with it some more, perhaps update/switch stacks.

        Nope, just 2x AA's.
