Hardware remotes
« on: November 07, 2023, 01:08:23 pm »

What all are people using for hardware remotes similar to the Harmony devices (which Harmony has abandoned).

Looking for a new hardware based remote that can control multiple devices, has macro/automation support, and is programmable to control Media Center.  Ideally not something tied to an online database (i.e. Harmony)...

Ideally supports IR and Bluetooth

Hmm...  Are we the only two people that prefer physical/dedicated remotes?

I'm suffering through using an old Windows Media Center (sigh - those were the days) remote, but the mapping is different and I'm clueless if/how it can be made to work with MC.

Anyone? 

Bueller?

The Media Center Remote that worked with Windows MC  also works with JRiver.  Please see the wiki.

The Jelly Star phone has an IR blaster on it, could make for an interesting remote with the right apps.
