About iRule:

After some hours of "programming" thru iRule's interface i wonder if it's the right system... Let me explain, it's really simple add buttons and link them to specific-device commands but i have several issue on network link.
I used a direct http link to control my xbmc and only one time worked well.
Maybe my old phone (htc magic) isn't fully compatible or i got some mistakes during the content creation..
I have 5 remote on my desk and i don't want anymore. My search for the "unique one" must go on...
Any suggestion?

Are there more IR Receivers that work 100% with Linux?
I want to buy one best case from germany.
I cant even find the HP on amazon.de or any other german shop and ebay only ships from china/hong kong and its hard to find the 5188-1667.

Oh btw Iam using a Harmony so no need for the Remote just the Receiver.

Thats the only one I found in a german shop that seems to work ok with Linux.

@Dragonlance:
Check logitech blemished box sales I upgraded to a Harmony 700 last week got it under 50€ with free Ultimate Ears 100.
Not that different from the One or other higher priced models just no touchscreen and only 6 device (650 is for 5 I think).

My old choice was the harmony 1100 but its price is too high, even in a blemished box. I saw also the iPronto line but prices are vy high too. No
But when I read about the iRule my mind get crazy around a cheaper android tablet turned into a "perfect" customized remote.....Cool
Btw it's not so simple, and i'm wondering if it worth or not.
