ADKM: Hi Farcus,
Really happy with things so far ! The mouse is the only thing to improve - it is very sluggish while watching something. I hope this will work better as a remote (too late if not as I bought one!)
When I get (far) more familiar with it I'd like to try watching BBC World. Did install the 'Wold News Live' plugin but but am told "Script failed".
Thanks for your encouragement to get a pi. Already proved it will show files DLNA would not.
no experience with that remote, although I did consider buying one but ended up going with the one I linked to earlier.
There was some suggestion in reviews of the one that you have purchased that the remote needs to be pointing directly at the receiver.
Not sure that you will get much improvement with mouse movements. I don't think it is really designed to be used with a mouse, although mouse movements are required from time to time.
Remote movements are pretty zippy though so once you have a remote navigation should be a lot better.
Where did you instal World News Live from?
You should install from K3oni's repo (he is the developer)
Plenty of youtube guides on how to add repos and also how to add the very useful fusion.
edit: BBC World doesn't seem to be working on World News Live at the moment although BBC News is working fine.
I'm sure it will get updated with a fix soon.
