Sorry for double posting in case this issue was already discussed here on the forum but I'd like to know if this device http://www.alza.cz/dalkovy-ovladac-ps3-d72650.htm can be made to work with apple tv2 /xbmc. I saw you guys using xbmc on atv with bluetooth keyboard, so i guess the principle should be the same. Has anyone tried this setup? Thx for your answer and recommendations. I just want to be sure before I buy the damned thing Rolleyes Thx again.

Second this request. The supplied remote is tiny and keeps falling in between cushions!

Server - Debain Squeeze Server + 6TB RAID5 + Sabnzbd + CP & SB
HTPC - Zotac MAG + 60GB Vertex 2 SSD + OpenELEC Frodo 12.1 + Aeon Nox
HTPC 2 - AppleTV 2

Why don't you try pairing the PS3 BD remote with the ATV2 and see if you can create a useful keymap for it...

Or you could just use an old spare remote like a DVD player etc and use frontrow to learn the new remote, takes all of 2 minutes to do.

I paired it in atv2 custom settings' BT Stack.
But the question remains, now what. This doesnt leave a working ps3 bd remote in XBMC.

Any further steps?

Talk to Matthias Ringwald, he's the one behind BTstack.

There's a few logs you can check to see if the events are being recognized by BTstack:
/tmp/hci_dump.pklg (open with wireshark)
/var/log/BTstack.*
/var/log/keyboardd.*
/var/log/syslog

Good luck
