Logitech diNovo Mini HTPC Keyboard

Hey I think I've found a near perfect keyboard, the Logitech diNovo Mini. The only negatives are it doesn't have the F1, F2, F3, etc keys. I would also prefer to have a dedicated key for the Esc (escape) instead of having to use a key combination. This is a great keyboard. Check out my demonstration...

How often What data does it send What is the IP address or domain name of the server(s) I don't think I care about it phoning home if it helps further develop what is already a great ...

Re: HDPVR IR Blasting to a Comcast Cisco RNG150 SetTop Box

I'm exploring fireware for channel changing. I guess I"m going to try the 6200ch command. I'm also looking at this post http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=977820 by majoridiot. Am I heading down the right path? Any tips for firewire channel changing?

Thanks, PLA

Re: HDPVR IR Blasting to a Comcast Cisco RNG150 SetTop Box

pla, also keep in mind that if the cable box supports it, Firewire changing is 99.99% reliable. Does this cisco box have a firewire port? If you have to generate your own codes, the HD-HR is the gadget I use to generate all my codes from my hand held remotes using irrecord. It really is quite good ...

Re: HDPVR IR Blasting to a Comcast Cisco RNG150 SetTop Box

Which blaster are you using, the PVR-1212's? If so support is a bit sketchy at the moment. Whatever IR blaster you use make sure it's functioning correctly. I assume you did a search of your STB model & MythTV? If nobody has come up with a working lirc.conf file for that particular model STB then y...

HDPVR IR Blasting to a Comcast Cisco RNG150 SetTop Box

Hey Folks I get most of my content OTA via HD Homerun and antenna in my attic. I'm loving the OTA content but I wanted to get ESPN HD so I picked up an HD PVR 1212 from Amazon for $169.99. I got a Cisco RNG150 settop box from Comcast. I'm new to IR blasting. After searching a bit I get the impressio...

Re: Make it slingbox

That was my understanding. This is the module that I have been looking into. http://mythstreamtv.sourceforge.net/ I may have to blaze this trail and see where it takes me. D That project looks to be dead. No updates since 2005-01-27. I'll be pleasantly surprised if you find success. Let us know if ...

I want to use it when I am on the road. I have a dnydns url. Will it work using something like that instead of an IP address? I already have it installed on my laptop but have only used it inside my own subnet using the LAN ip. I guess I could just give it a shot nest time I am out and about using ...

Re: Make it slingbox

Pretty cool PLA! I will sure work on that aspect. I was more looking for a way to use mythbox as a slingbox. I wanted to stream tv to a laptop, the phone was kind of an afterthought. I have seen a plugin to stream tv but it is not an official one. I depend on my mythtv so much now that I don't want...
