anybody know if the ps3 adaptor works with a harmony one??



From review on Amazon:

This isn't a review for the remote as i didnt use it but the adapter for the PS3.
I use this with my Harmony one (after teaching it the commands from the universal remote provided) as a cheaper alternative to thier Harmonys adapter.
All the same functions as the official bluetooth remote seem to be available and the fact it is battery powered is a massive bonus as i dont have to sacrifice a wall socket.
The harmony one learnt the commands easily enough and it powers on and off as expected.

Battery life on the adapter is superb and i might be wrong but if you put rechargable batteries in it and keep it connected to the PS3 with a MicroUSB it recharges the batteries when the PS3 is switched on. (cant confirm this but the batteries in mine dont appear to have depleted at all.

No missed key presses in my experience and the PS3 pairs easily with it.
For the Price this is a better, cheaper and stronger alternative to Harmonys PS3 Adapter.

I have this. It works well for my purposes - control the TV, Sky, Amp and PS3 with a single remote. Programmable too, so I can switch on the PS3 with a single button press, and the Onkyo and telly will switch over as required.

I've had it about 18 months. No battery changes required yet. Recommended.
Bought mine from play.com for £17 a couple of weeks back... it's now £17.18

So the run down ... what exactly is special and is this a deal ? Sort of / Sort of not

This is URC7965 which comprises of the URC7960 remote geared to be used with the bluetooth module that relays infra red from the remote and translates them into bluetooth signals for your PS3. So in essence you're really just getting the bluetooth module for free.

Overall it's a good remote but not an earth shattering hukd.
any idea if this would work with the raspberry pi for controlling xbmc

For the faint hearted I would suggest you get get an RC6 MCE compatible usb infra red controller. This remote can easily drive it.

I myself like pain and a bargain so I picked up this £4.50 jobbie from the bay and with some hacking(xorg hack+evrouting) I have it working with the one-4-all remote and xbmc. Lovely Jubbly

I would strongly suggest the first option with an MCE receiver

I've just ordered my first Raspberry Pi on the basis Raspbmc is supposed to be running more stable now, going to have it feeding from a a shared mySQL library. Anyways......

The clintcher on getting the Pi is that I understand it now has fully functioning CEC over HDMI, so that most modern TV's (including my Bravia with Sync) will allow you to use your TV remote to control the Pi, would this not be the best way to control a Pi?
I was going to get this remote anyway, so the 'free' module is great.

1 - Anyone serious about using XBMC will not use R-Pi

2 - libCEC is a great concept but think of how practical it will be in reality. You would still have to switch to the TV layout on your universal remote or worst case scenario have 2 remotes - one for the TV(+ R-Pi via CEC) and one for everything else.

By all means play with libCEC but personally the outlay and potential headaches makes it a miss for me
Great deal worth a shot for the price looks easy to use too love the combined modes showed off in the video will be great for controlling tv amp and DVD all via one remote.
remote takes 4 batteries.hmm
is this the same as This URC7965

Its been a long day and i missed that comment, cheers for the wakeup call
Got one two weeks ago. A little big and plasticky compared to what I expected but works as advertised.

The remote takes four aaa's and the ps3 adaptor takes 2xaa batteries. The operating functions flash blue when a button is pressed so not sure how long batts will last.

The ps3 adaptor is a stand alone box .. it connects to the ps3 via Bluetooth..it doesn't connect by a lead or use the USB ports.. It is actually quite big..perhaps the same volume as a 20 cigarette packet though squarer. It works well and even works if its not facing the remote (my 2yo keeps moving it)

Works well with ps3 once paired. No need to re-pair each time you boot up unlike the dual shock controllers. Takes a second to initially register then works fine.

The remote worked with all my devices within 5 mins...though more fiddly commands needed to be mapped using the learn function. Instructions a bit confusing...it helped to read them aloud slowly..sounds odd but I found them stupidly literal.

Given the low cost its a decent multi purpose substitute for a 'proper' ps3 remote.
Hi. Does anyone know if this works with the virgin TiVo box?
