Honestly, I just want to use my Android phone. I think a non-ridiculously priced wifi/bluetooth connected IR/RF blaster with a good App interface is my dream come true.

I don't want another remote to keep track of when my phone is always on me and the official xbmc remote app is brilliant. If it could also intelligently operate my TV and stereo, you could SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY. lol

Maybe you should take a look at this project:
XBMC gets dedicated remote - Motorola Nyxboard

Motorola Nyxboard Hybrid

Personally I´m more than happy with Harmony One
But I would like to see a low cost alternative that works out of the box.

Hey man,

good luck with your business...
Have taken a look at the FAQ, but couldn't find the answer:
Are you shipping to Europe, too?

Great feedback everyone. I will take all your suggestions into considerations. Until then, we did manage to get a great deal on several thousand MCE IR remotes. We will be extending this great deal to the forums. I'll have more details soon.

While I would like a remote with keyboard etc and power user function. My primary wife approved remote is an XBOX DVD remote.
I would summarize my wife approved remote as:
1. small form factor, her hands are smaller by far and using a large remote causes her frustration
2. Solid menu navigation and informational keys.
3. Standard play, pause, stop, FF,RW. I wouldn't mind these just being skip forward, skip backward.

Tivo Slide can do this, for about $40. It's not perfect, but for the right setup it can come pretty close.
