Contratulations to all the developers for the nice work... Quite impressive, indeed.
I have testes in in Windows 7 Home 64bit, running on an Acer Revo r3610, and it works flawlessly with the PS3 BD remote. Just install, "Pair and Play".
However I want to propose a new challenge:
A few months ago, Logitech released this jewel:
Basically, it is a Bluetooth remote from the PS3 but an IR sensor from our point of view...
So it translates IR commands (at least from the Harmony remote, but I guess it will work with any) to Bluetooth.
It keeps the link to the PS3 while it is on stand by, and you can use a Harmony remote (starting from 30 bucks) to control ALL YOUR EQUIPMENTS, including FULL control of the PS3.
So my idea is to put the XBMC on a Revo box (on the back of the flat TV, controlled using the BT of the Logitech Adapter) and use the Harmony remote to control the rest of the equipments, so when I turn the volume up, it will be the A/V receiver volume the one that receives the IR codes to raise the level.
I thought at first that the combination (Harmony + Logitech PS3 Adapter) would be functionally equivalent to the PS3 BD remote (it is for the PS3), but it does not work that fast (it is not "pair & play" ;-P).
I am sure that you can do it with EventGhost, but to be honest, I'd prefer to use your approach as it is much more simple (an thus elegant).
I can pair the Logitech box with the W7, and apparently is the same as the BD remote, but something is not working. Instead of a START + ENTER combination, it has a buttom to connect, and the light starts to blink until it is paired.
I am pretty sure that many people on this forum would be gratefull if you are able to capture the BT keys from this device. I bought one dongle for me and it was a matter of hours until some friends ordered several. It's about 35 euros, and perfect to control the BluRay in the PS3 from a single remote, so, why not using it for the PS3. I ordered 2 so far (one for the PS3, one for the Revo) and thinking on using another for a MAC (I have to test it)
If you don't see the utility, I will say you another application, probably very common...
I have a Sony Flat TV on my living room, connected thru an HDMI to the AV/Reveiver, and a lot of electronic there (A Wii console, an old S-VHS cassette player, an cable receiver, and I have a computer on my office room (a wall appart). I had an unused HDMI output on the computer there, so I decided to buy a cheap 10 meters HDMI cable and connect it to my AV receiver on the living room, on a free HDMI input. So, turning the input selector knob on the A/V receiver, I can see the desktop of my computer on the 40" TV in the Living room at 1080p, and can run the XBMC on the secondary display of the Computer... But, how I control XBMC?
Personally, I use a BT keyboard, but it would be SUPERB if I could pair the Logitech PS3 adapter with the computer, place the IR sensor in the Living room, besides the A/V receiver, and use a Harmony remote from my coach to turn everything on and control it?
I personally would pay for it!!!
