CEC support for the Panasonic remote I have is still a bit basic. The native play, forward, stop etc keys on the lower part of the remote are not working. You have to go through the Option key.
However a bit more annoying the Context Menu is missing since I can't seem to find the title key on my remote? So I simple remapped the Red button to the Context Menu
All you have to do is copy the remote.xml file:
# cp /usr/share/xbmc/system/keymaps/remote.xml /storage/.xbmc/userdata/keymaps/ # nano .xbmc/userdata/keymaps/remote.xml
Now Change the red entry to ContextMenu and reboot
I still need to figure out how I enable the play buttons on the lower part of the remote.
So far it runs really well. Some menus are a bit sluggish with the Confluence skin, but nothing major. I've had a few issues where I've had to reboot the board because the Official XBMC Remote wouldn't properly reconnect and I was too lazy to reconnect the USB keyboard.
It runs so well that I just sold my Apple TV3. Actually I don't really understand why I bought that iTunes s... in the first place? Well one thing was that the old XBMC box died hard on my. But then I guess I hoped it would be jailbroken and able to run XBMC like Apple TV2. However that has still not happened. And to add to that the ATV3 was such a pain to get to play any of my media files and the iTunes stuff just felt like something really bad. So I gave up on it after messing around with it for a day.
One Apple item less, I start wondering about my MacBook Air.. The hardware is really really nice, but I also really miss Linux on my desktop. It just feels more hackable and I feel way more at home. If anyone have recommendations about good Linux compatible ultrabooks that are really silent, please let me know.
Yesterday I took the leap and installed the CyanogenMod 10 preview for the Samsung Galaxy S2. The installation went fine and the backup/restore process were less of a pain than when I last performed a wipe/factory reset. Here is a quick summary so far.
Though the Bad list is long I'll keep this as my daily driver from now on.
For those interested I just pushed latest Piwik 1.6 and B2evolution 4.1.1 ebuilds to my portage overlay at github.
