Been using this remote on my Nexus One for almost a week now and I am truly impressed with the program.
Some bugs still exist though;

When tilting phone in remote-mode the buttons get all screwed up.
Clearly not made for the 800x480 screen.

Tilting phone in music-library mode all albums or artists reload before showing.

In the music library i get the Genre: Karaoke, but when clicked there are no albums or songs showing.

Get "No movies found" in movie-library even if librarymode works on xbox.
For some reason I have 20 movie genres showing, but if I press one of the i get the "SORRY!! Application XBMC Remote (process org.xbmc.android.remote) suddenly stopped. Try again."


And a new feature or enhancment;

Sort albums by year. This is my favorite sorting and it's not there Sad



All bugs found on remote4xbmc 0.6.7 on a Nexus One and XBMC 9.04.1 r20848 on a XBOX 1.2. (All builds after this have the insane directionpad bug with skipping. The problems can very well lie here.

I compiled the r582 and the new looks for the tilted remote is very good Nod

However I got a new problem. It wont connect to the XBMC, but I can still use the remote. The directional bug was also still there so don't know if I messed up something or what.

EDIT: Using the T3CH XBMC 2010-03-10 SVN rev2847 on XBOX

SVN version is very unstable right now. You should stick with the release and not tilt the remote for now Wink

Also running this on a nexus one, latest stable release.

I would like to see a way to lower the sensitivity on the trackball. it is much too sensitive for practical use. Either an option to adjust or lowering it to a user friendly level would be helpful.

Is audio playlists and smartplaylists on the to do list?
Top 100 and partymode would be great Smile

If you compare music library in xbmc your missing top 100 and playlists

I tries to work around by opening the xps playlists in files but it returns ' not a directory '
I can't find a way to trigger partymode either

Xps files aka smart playlists should be able to open as a directory and in the context menu have a special option 'play in partymode'
