You need either an IR to BT device which allows all remote commands to work or an IR to USB device that limits you to game controller input (you end up having to hit Triangle a lot to bring up commands instead of going straight to the commands like with a remote).
Just need a MCE IR receiver such as the HP Media Center IR receiver from eBay.
Two out of these three questions were answered in the FAQ sticky...
I did read the FAQ sticky, but some things are still unclear!
Regarding the MCE IR REceiver, that is the exact same one I have which I am waiting for to be delivered... my question was more related to setup... I know for example that with the Harmony you just choose media center and enter MCE keyboard, however I do not know if this is possible with the URC remote... If it's in the database I mean... that's what I need to know cause information on URC and HTPC seems to be limited.
Regarding the PS3, I definately want a IR to BT ... I just don't know what to go for... any suggestions?
Regarding the RF Receiver... I don't think I need the RXF-250 that comes with the bundle as I have just one room, but I think I do need the extra number of ports.
This is how my cabinet is set up:
To get an idea this is my cabinet
Panasonic VT30 - On Top obviously
PS3 (will use an IR to BT device) - Left Door; Top Shelf
HTPC (with usb HP IR receiver) - Left Door; Bottom Shelf
Dreambox - Right Door; Top Shelf
Denon 4520 - Right Door; Bottom Shelf
The middle compartments, the top one contains the center speaker (removed the drawer) and the bottom one is used for accessories such as ps3 controllers, 3D glasses etc, so nothing to be controlled in the middle compartment.
So will the MRF-260 be good for me or do I need the MRF-350? (I want everything controlled by RF)
