[mythtv-users] Remote Control

The CM19a will receive and transmit.  The only thing it won't do is receive mouse commands from the Mouse Remote, all other buttons are fine.  I modified this project, http://sourceforge.net/projects/wish/, to support the CM19a.  This gives you full support of X10 devices also.  I then modified the perl script from the first url I sent to get the commands from the CM19a and exec a command.  I find this to be a versatile solution.

I will be happy to share the things that I did. It has been working now for a couple of months and I plan on submitting the changes back to the wish project.

  I know, I used it then decided on making a KDE version to sit in the tray.  
Then, I started thinking that perhaps all I was doing was nonsense if someone 
else already done it.  Which is why I asked.

  I don't know about that version, but I found the X10 Remote to be most 
useful for precisely the same reason.

  I found one CM19a on eBay, but it appears to be the same one I got with my 
MouseRemote, except this one has a PS/2 and RS232 passthrough ports.  Can the 
CM19a be used to transmit signals as well as receive them?
