    I just received 3 of these buggers.
    Damn they are small...and nice too.

    They do turn on the HTPC from standby/hibernation.

    They also support changing x10 channel (1-16) - useful when u have multiple remotes.

    The only problem for people running multiple htpc rigs with those remote controls, are that any of the remotes will turn on any of the HTPCs in your household.

    Not too well thought out.
    Probably a hardware design glitch not fixable.

    My workaround is to use the eventghost/wakeOnLan hack and then disable powermanagement on the USB root hub.

    Hi,
    i only know where you can buy it in Germany but maybe it helps: PC-Funkfernbedienung X10 :: Pollin Electronic GmbH another location is Ebay (search for X10) but there it's twice the price... So maybe you can buy a better one somewhere else.

    thrilled: I hope i could help ;-) And sorry for the late answer.

    The vision of the MediaPortal project is to create a free open source media centre application, which supports all advanced media centre functions, and is accessible to all Windows users.

    In reaching this goal we are working every day to make sure our software is one of the best.

             

  • Support MediaPortal!

    The team works very hard to make sure the community is running the best HTPC-software. We give away MediaPortal for free but hosting and software is not for us.

    Care to support our work with a few bucks? We'd really appreciate it!
