Actually no. It's not sending an O because I don't get codec info up in XBMC when I press the button I assigned it to. In fact it's not sending any command as I don't see any characters in a free text field when I press the button.
On another note, if I want to switch back and forth between controlling my PS3 and PC, will I need to register the remote every time? I went back to my PS3 and the controller was no longer recognized. Is there an easy way to flip between the two?

Just FYI, I got round the problem by adding the ascii code for O (79) in the ps3remotesettings.ini file. Works fine now :-)

has any work been done on this program? it works great for me other than not automatically disconnecting the remote when it's idle. I'm sure there is a way because Remote Buddy for os x does it

I actually came across this in my projects folder today. Starting to research a bit more to find a solution to the battery life issue.
I have actually found a solution to the problem but it doesn't work for 64bit users

I've got a question. I have a PS3 sitting right next to HTPC. Once I've paired the remote up with the HTPC, what will happen if I press "power button" on my remote? Wouldn't it power up both the PS3 and the HTPC?

did you try it??
if i remember correct the remote can be only paired with 1 devise, so if you want it to control the ps3 you need to re-pair it again.. so no, it doesnt turn on your playstation (i think) but why not press the power button? and find out..

Anyone was able to pair the remote in XP?
I'm able to pair with Vista since there is an option to not use a code but in Windows XP there is no option.
Thanks for the help.
