Boxee Remote is now supported !!

September 8th, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

Today’s last commit just brought complete support for Boxee remote control. While originally shipped with BoxeeBox, the remote control is available since a few months as a standalone device (for 39$ only on Amazon).

The Boxee Remote  comes as nice and shiny 2 faces remote control. Front face provides simple media controls (arrow keys, ok, play/pause, menu) while the back face features a full QWERTY keyboard. Support for this new remote control now provides you with the perfect input for your multimedia experience.

The remote is USB-HID compliant and seen as a regular keyboard, making it of course independent of Boxee front-end itself and, as such, is recognized on any front-end we support, being XBMC, MythTV, Freevo or Enna.

    Does anybody know if one can buy the remote in europe (austria or germany) as well?
    Amazon.at does not sell it. and shipping from the us is a little bit expensive …

    thanks

      Not that I know of. I had to buy mine on Amazon.com USA and shipping was almost the remote’s price :-(

    There’s the XBMC remote, which is a different design, and is shipped from the UK. It’s not supported yet, but will be as soon as I get mine (they’re clearing the order backlog, so it shouldn’t take long).
