So what are we building?
We’re keen to create a unified ecosystem for HTPC, so that’s control, automation and interaction. Our first step was the remote control, our next project is to get your TV/DVD/Blu-ray/Playstation talking with your HTPC, what we are building is a USB-CEC adaptor, in laymens terms, it allows XBMC to control your TV (i.e. turn it off and on) and change your amplifiers volume, or vice versa, use your TV remote to turn your HTPC/XBMC on/off and control the interface.
XBMC will have full support for our adaptor and it is due to be available in early September. As we are producing this entirely ourselves in-house, we know we are going to meet this deadline but we’re not going to open up pre-orders until we’ve signed off production. If you want however, you can register your interest by emailing us, and those emailing will get priority on ordering.
We’re initially only producing a limited run, with more being built as demand requires. So if this type of gadget sounds like something you want then get in touch so you get it first (email@example.com)
Oh about the price. Expect it to be around $45 including cables.
