Anyone thought of programming the Nintendo DS as a remote? I've
downloaded the development tools for it but thought I'd check to see if
anyone was ahead of me (and I haven't bought one yet --- luckily, since
the new slimline version will make a far niftier remote).
For those who don't know: the DS is a handheld gaming device with dual
screens, one of them a touch screen, and wireless. It has a growing
homebrew scene. Its battery life is pretty good (~20 hours use).
Current concept: use the new mythtv telnet interface to read data to
display on the top screen (status/listing/playback progress/program
guide etc), and have context dependent control buttons displayed on the
bottom touch screen.
