Announcing Xr3 0.1 for Linux
Xr3 is a simple GUI based remote control program to be used while watching a ReplayTV via a Linux based TV card. A RedRat learning remote control is used to communicate to the ReplayTV. The program allows you to control the most frequently used ReplayTV functions, i.e.
Channel Guide - TV Program listings
Replay Guide - Recorded content and custom "Channels"
Replay Zones - Programs index by subject, ...
Trick Features - Quick Skip(30 seconds), Instant Replay(7 secs), Slow Motion, Freeze Frame, Frame Advance
Navigation - Fast Fwd, Rew, Jump, Return to Live
Other - Every thing else but Number Keys(TBD shortly)
all from the comfort of your mouse! The RedRat learning remote control
sends the IR commands via your serial port. The xr3 program uses the rather excellent IR perl script from David Kramer. This perl script can also be driven from the command line, via email or interactively via the web!
Xr3 should run on most Linux systems, I use Red Hat 6.1 . It currently uses the Motif toolkit which is now freely available, and it should also work quite well with LessTif. I plan to quickly do a more substantial version for GNOME/Gtk.
