Ive got my raspberry pi with raspbmc installed and set up perfectly. It works like a charm.
to make it a bit more user friendly for my other half, i bought a cheap remote contol off amazon.
i plugged it in and it worked for about 10 minutes and then the battery died. So I bought new batteries and they died in about 20 mins. obviously a faulty remote so I need to sort that out, but thats for another time.
I also have a media centre remote like this one. Its not this exact one but is very similar. On the back it says RC6 ir. I do not have the receiver for this.
My question is should I be able to use the remote with the ir receiver from amazon? If yes, how??
