Going back to the remote controls here, I am curious if anyone can help me out.
I currently have a Raspberry Pi in the mail I'm going to throw up as an XBMC box (replacing an ancient full sized noisy P4 tower). It has CEC control so my thought is to reduce attached hardware as much as possible and use the TV's remote to control it.
Now I have a US set with the US remote obviously, limited on controls especially playback controls which the European remote has. Question is this: a) Has anyone tried the E remotes on U TV's? b) Do the extra controls work (obviously not on the TV itself but over CEC to another device) and c) Any good sources for E remotes stateside? All searches I have done with the particular model number mostly comes up with UK based sources.
Worst case I can utilize my AVR's remote which can also do CEC but keeps the remote list to two (TV remote at the very least to turn the system on and off and change from the internal tuner to HDMI and thr AVR remote for playback controls, having playback controls on the TV remote could trim that down to a single remote.)
