I've just received Belkin MediaPilot keyboard. It has learning IR
remote but I haven't got to programming it yet. I searched the
archives, there is no mention of it, so I was a little worried about
whether it works for Linux, but on FC3 all I had to do was plug it
into USB port, it was not even necessary to edit xorg.conf. Keyboard
and mouse parts work right away.

If anyone used MEdiaPilot and has any tips for using the remote or
configuring its special keyboard buttons, I'd like to hear them,
before I start.

BTW, for computer experts like myself who don't need to bother with
the manual, if the keypad built into the base works but the detachable
keyboard does not, it really needs the batterries and then to do the
handshake with the base station :)
