  • Looking for a Low Profile Media Remote

    Any one got any leads on a small low profile media remote. All the ones that i have seen here are all very large and better suited for sitting on your coffe table in your living room.

    I have done multiple searches and the only one that ican come up with is the creative one which doesn't appear to have media buttons (i.e. gps/dvd/video/audio)

    I have one of those GE make remote about the size of a nokia 8200/8900 series (well a little small). All it has is Power, Volumm up/down, Channel Up/Down, Play(Pause)/Stop/Forward/Reverse, TV/VCR/DVD/AUX(cable).
    I bought that from BigLots aka Pick-N-Save for $2.99 brand new.

        Just stop by any Biglots they may have one. If not check back. They don't have them all the time.
        oh, I am about going out of town so I can't give you the model number.

          I use MadCatz dual sided remote control. It has the size of a credit card and is about 0.5 cm thick. I am very very very pleased with it... (and no I have no warrents in MadCatz). It has DVD, VCR and TV.
          I am using Girder and a homemade IR sensor in my car. Just works perfect.

          Check it out:

            Woa Thats pretty cool. I will have to look into that one. I like how it is double sided and blue. My only gripe is that it doesn't have media buttons. Any others

                Hey that one is pretty cool although it is missing the media buttons. I wonder if anybody makes a slim htpc style remote

                  I am eyeing this remote

                  www.mediaremote.com

                  C4M pointed this one out in another post. It is a little large but would certainly do the job.

                  I wish i could find one with simlar buttons only half the size

                      That looks like it's made by the X10 Lola people. I'm betting it would work with the Girder Lola plugin.

                          its not smaller in any way, but it looks reallllly useful. moving it left and right can either advance to the end of a song or the beggining. it is also a mouse that can be controled in the air. i am considering it myself , just curious if i would be able to make those media controls work with say , frodoplayer? . its really pricey but it also comes with keyboard and the remote looks hella-usefull.

                              Yea, I am about at the point of ordering it. I wish someone could confirm that it works with Girder. I guess i will have to be a guinne pig (no rush though...touchscreen is working fine for the moment)

                              Edit: I think i found what i am looking for... i just have to get a better picture of it to see if it has the correct buttons i am having trouble finding an online picture of it

                              I will keep you all posted
