Well, I also have one of those ATI remote thingy's, so yes I have some
interest. However, I suspect that there is a way to do this in a
slightly different and neater way? Perhaps something more like a LIRC
daemon which converts back into the input layer?
However, it would be interesting to see if it wasn't possible to abstrct
the input layer further? I still have dreams of building a Palm powered
remote control, possibly via a web based remote control. It would be
rather useful to have a kind of abstracted "Status" component which
allows external devices to find out current state of the system and
hence send commands in context
Nice work. Hope it goes somewhere!
