Well, my ZyXEL Media NAS arrived a coupel of days ago and is up and running :)
I'm off down to CPC later to get a Raspberry Pi (with case: New product and manufacturers highlights | CPC) the only thing I want to know is about how to control it without having to resort to using my wireless KB). I have seen this video here: Raspberry Pi v2 XBMC Demonstration - YouTube and the guy seems to be using a media center remote control. My only question is, how on Earth is it communicating with the Pi? I have seen the XBMC software that utilises iPhones and Android devices (I can get that fine). But does the Pi have an IR connector?
