XBMC Remote Keyboard

XBMC Remote Keyboard

XBMC Remote Keyboard allows you to control your XBMC installation from another system as if your keyboard was directly connected

Overview

Today i present the initial alpha of my new application “XBMC Remote Keyboard”, As you can probably guess by the name it is a remote keyboard application, Basically it allows you to control your XBMC installation from another system as if the keyboard is directly connected (currently requires ALT to be pressed). This is done via JSON requests sent to XBMC. Controlling the Windows OS side of my Media PC is so easy thanks to Synergy and i wanted the same sort off functionality in the OpenELEC (XBMC) side also. The application is quite early in development and more functionality is planned.
