I thought I'd throw a photo up of the remote I'm currently using:

Attached File  IMG_1117.JPG   167.2KB   37 downloads

This is the iPazzPort Model KP-810-10A and cost $24 : it has it's own RF receiver and I use it for my x86 based XBMC setup and for an Android tablet controlling unit for a Samsung based a816 I have that has a bad touchscreen.

Overall I'm very pleased with it, this is the unit with the built in li-po battery that charges via the mini USB port, lasts a long time on a charge. There are clones of this item on the auction site that take AA batteries, however, they are thicker and the touchpad is more recessed.

I will be posting some pictures of an interesting project on the a816 as it progresses.

I think they are very resourceful and we don't really know what is or isn't a clone anyway. The device I have works well, size is about right although my sausage fingers would like something slightly bigger.

In the interests of science I have ordered a device from a company called Hanson Technology, it is a qwerty remote that doubles as a keypad, the variant I ordered is the Feltouch Classic.

Which looks like it may be very useful.

I will do a little review when it arrives.

Oh, I will also do a review on one of their TV boxes, the AML8726-M based Surbox 701 which has both HDMI and VGA output : again, I'm waiting for the postman on both those items.

lol I have the iPazzPort BT keyboard as well with an Android 4 TV stick and it works for me even though I agree that it is no for big boys :unsure:
If it weren't for Edson we'd be using our tablets by candlelight

Has anyone found any recent, great apps for remote controlling the Android sticks my Gf's GS3 couldn't use the rockchip remote app with my UG007. Thought I'd ask around.

Also, has anyone tried b,use tooth remotes with a USB BT dongle or a TV Stick tht has BT baked in?
