Will be interesting to see if the Nevo C3 can learn this IR codes and then translate to RF somehow.
Trying to catch up.

- USB charging: Maybe. I've never tried

- RF control of LED lights: C3 has about 40 RF code sets built in for many home automation devices and lighting systems, one of which may work your lights directly without the hub. No, you can't learn IR and translate it to RF.

- FLIRC: Maybe. I've never tried it. The tricky part would be plugging it into your stick while still powering the stick over USB. This is what the IReTV is designed to do, and is plug and play. I think by the time you cobble together all the various adapters and splitters that you could have paid for the $23 IReTV. But it would be great to find out if it's possible. If you try it, let us know how it works out. Out of the box, FLIRC will use Microsft Windows Media Center codes.

Another note about FLIRC. I have used it with a FireTV box that has a normal sized USB port and separate power connection. Works fine. Problem with the stick is that is has a single, tiny USB port that must also supply power.

RE USB Charging a Google search got me to this:

"Rechargeable battery with charging cradle (also USB chargeable)"
That would be great.

C3 means and extra plug taken by the charging base or maybe as I write this I never considered. Can the C3 be charged via the USB socket?
