    I am using this remote w/ girdir. It was a lot of manual programming and it rocks. all that is missing is an alt and ctrl key but can be made fully functional w/o those keys. In addition I used girdir to program the keys and custom made a receiver as detailed in www.lirc.org. Cheers

    Wow, that's alot of keys on that remote.

    Does it contain a full keyboard inside?
    Is it RF or IR?

    It is IR

    There is a full keyboard inside hence the use of girder to program the keys uniquely. Again there is no alt and ctrl keys. You can assign alt+??? and ctrl+??? keys as hotkeys on some of the free keys on the remote. Works great for me.

    I am using this remote w/ girder. I actually think I purchased that unit from the Av uk Ltd link posted above. I dont know about irman, I suppose any program that lets you do key learning will work fine.
    I have the girder template kb layout if anyone is interested. it takes quite some time to program key by key. I dont know anything about an american distributor. My understanding is that this keyboard is used for some webtv like box available in the uk. They do ship to the us, I purchased mine from the uk, took about 6 days to get here. Its awesome.

    P.S. I used the homebrew UART receiver, instructions available via http://www.lirc.org. My pics are being posted up soon. Look out for Http://carpc.hirschorn.com over the next week.
