Use your iPhone as a XBMC for Mac OS X remote - zebb - 2008-02-21 03:05
Modified the remote from
http://code.google.com/p/telekinesis-tapps/ a bit.
Don't know how many of you find this is useful, but I do and it works just great!
Some critical buttons i've missed? Some other buttons/functions you would like to see?
(even if the screen is quite full already if you want to keep it on 1 page w/o scrolling..)
The X is programmed to launch XBMC if not already running and in case it is, it acts as the enter button.
If someone's interested and don't want to make their own custom remote I could upload this after cleaning up a bit..

Nice! I'll give this a shot at home.
Thanks for sharing.

Well, here it is.
Not cleaned up.. there's still some other remotes etc.
But give it a try and try to make it even better!
Will post if I make some big changes.
Tried it with edge, works great.
Apple iPod touch? - Gamester17 - 2008-02-21 14:28
Does it work on the iPod Touch as well?, ...not that I have one, just curious
- zebb - 2008-02-21 15:14
Yeah, I don't see why it woudn't, but then just via WLAN, which drains the battery quite a lot..
Best option would probably be to have a flat-rate Edge subscription.
I'm amazed how fast the response time is with Edge.

I haven't tried this out at home yet, but from the look of directory structure it seems to just require that users have Apache ("web sharing" in Applespeak) enabled, and have a working PHP environment. Is there anything else that we'll need to have working to use this?

There isn't any possibility this could get to work with the internal webserver so it would work on Linux/xbox also?

Could someone tell me the difference between this remote control and the other two?
I only have tried the first one and its controlled using the webserver. The other one seems to be a native application.
Which one should I choose? They all seems great, but the one I've tried (the first one) seems not to be developed any more...

im not so familiar with the ones you mention, but don't you just browse your files with those and choose which one to play on your Xbox?
With this you control OsXbmx in the same way as you would with a normal xbox remote.
