5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Linux XBMC or mythtv remote

Pros: Works well under Linux with any modern kernel version without the need to use LIRC.

Cons: Wasn't free.

Other Thoughts: This is one of the best remotes for media centers running under Linux. As long as you're running a modern kernel, this device is supported naively without the need to run LIRC. The only extra piece of software required is likely called "v4l-utils" which any respectable Linux distribution packages, Ubuntu, Fedora, Debian, Gentoo, Arch, Mint, etc.

Users need only provide a keycode file which setups the association between the keys pressed on the remote, and the kernel driver. For XBMC, a keyboard.xml file is needed which tells XBMC which actions correspond to the keys pressed on the remote. Examples for both files can be found at github dot com/graysky2/streamzap (had to spell out the first part of the URL so it wouldn't be filtered out).
