XBMC Remote Control (control XBMC with a PocketPC) - tobe81cwb - 2009-03-02 07:19
I developed a simple application to control the XBMC with a PocketPC. DIfferent from others similars programs, I like to use the PPC like a remote control (looking to the TV), and not like a remote media management.
I have only tested with a Ipaq hx2000 series.
Check the program in action:
The program 'talk' with XBMC using network (a small server on the XBMC computer to 'send the keys') and with HTTP server of XBMC.
Anybody to help-me with tests? (this is the first time that I program to Windows Mobile).
XBMC for Windows (anybody like to port do other OS?)
XBMC with webserver running.
A device with Windows Mobile.
I'm considering release the source-code
update: get the test version in the following address:

Well great! Something similar to my Project? -> http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=45277

yes, it's very similar
what program language to you use in your project?
how to you communicate with XBMC? using event server?
maybe we can 'merge' the projects

I would be interested in trying it. What version of Windows Mobile/PocketPC is required to run it?
- Lucleonhart - 2009-03-02 19:39
I'm using the Event server Lib ported to .NET Compact Framework by myself. Code is C#.
- Zeron - 2009-03-03 01:07
I think it will work then with the .net Compact Framework for PPC2002
I can dig out my pocketpc and give it a try.

this is a great app... if you can expand to add some "direct access" buttons on the main screen... like "TV Shows", "Movies", etc to mimic the home screen menu that would be very nice!
also, I think there is a native API so you may not been the separate sendkeys app?

the 'native API' it's using event server.
It's possible to make a remote control without the app to send the keys, but this will be more complex (maybe in next release - I made this in a weekend)
I can make another version without the client, only using the http server (to retrieve media info) and event server (to send keys) with same features.
I don't have checked the eventserver api yet, but I believe it's not possible to send direct access to main screen menu (movies, tv shows, etc)
