LXer: Developer crafts Linux support for Logitech Harmony remote controls

Published at LXer:

Logitech's Harmony series of programmable universal remote controls ship with Windows and Mac OS X configuration programs. That wasn't enough for Phil Dibowitz, though -- he set out to build his own Linux support. Remotes from the Harmony line feature fully programmable buttons, an infrared (IR) receiver that can learn commands from other remotes, LCD screens (some in color) with reprogrammable labels, and user-defined macros with which you can script multiple-command sequences involving multiple devices. All of these advanced features are configured through a GUI application that accesses Logitech's remote database of home theater devices and uploads your settings to the remote over a USB cable.
