the remote is not very fancy, but it allows me to do what i need:
- navigate through my movies collection,
- select a movie,
- jump forward and backward in the movie,
- control the audio volume,
- change the language and subtitle.
the application does not start the xbmc, so you must have it already started or you'll get an error message.
you can rate it at my-maemo.com. the code is available in the garage.
