I have been thinking, if we can have a remote to control front row, that would be lovely.
Remote: this is the easiest, we can just buy any cheapo remote, anything at all (possibly)
receiver: well, this is where it gets tricky. I know how to build one (a reciever), but i dont know how to interface it with the Mac. I heard it is quite hard to use USB, so i was thinking if i can use the parallel port, would be so much easier.
Anyone has any idea where i could go and read something about writing a service to interface with the IR receiver?
Oh god. I was thinking of using microcontroller and stuff to make the receiver circuit, but why reinventing the wheel,here u go.. http://lnx.manoweb.c...me=introductionenjoy

There are many cheap IR receivers to be used with common remote controls... don't know if they work with os x.

I use a cheap USB Bluetooth adapter that cost about $8 and a Wiimote with DarwiinRemote to use as a Frontrow/EyeTV remote.
