    Can it be controlled via the keyboard? I'd like to try it out using a Griffin Powermate and I can emulate keyboard inputs using the controller.

    I almost posted on this yesterday.

    They best solution would be to create an in-car skin for XBMC.
    Plex is based off XBMC and can use skins from it.

    Here is the documentation:
    http://xbmc.org/development/skinning/

    XBMC is a great media center that is cross-platform and very extensible.

    my main problem with this at the moment is the inability to control with the mouse. i have a griffin powermate but that only gives you a max of 6 keys that you can emulate, maybe enough to fully control the app, but i would prefer being able to fall back on touch if need be.

    Okay, I tried it. I meet the system specs (Intel 1.66 mac mini with 2gb of ram) but all that happens is it launches with a blank white window in the center of the screen.

    The users guide doesn't match the version of the software that I must have downloaded. It refers to the Preferences menu choice while my version only has an Advanced Preferences choice and no apparent way to set the resolution.

    I'm running it via screen share. That could be the problem. I'll try it connected directly to a monitor after work.
