[mythtv-users] Samsung BT flipper remotes ? (remote and keyboard in one)

Bluetooth remotes have pro's and con's compared to IR.
- line of sight is not required
- Line of sight is not required, so when accidental keypresses occur, they
actually matter whereas with IR, the signal would usually be blocked
- battery life is much poorer
- when they go to sleep, they take time to wake up and reconnect with
keypresses ignored or at the very least delayed
With regard to that specific remote I would say that there are not enough
media forward the back controls. I would look for a remote with multiple
keys that have
fast forward, rewind
increase playback speed (timestretch)
jump forward/backward x seconds (usually 30)
jump forward/backward x minutes (usually 5)
I use a PS3 Bluetooth BD remote and except for battery life and occasional
delay after it has gone to sleep I am happy with it. I so very rarely feel
the need to get the keyboard out - nearly always this is admin work which
cant be done via ssh from my laptop while watching tv.
