Anyone else using a Boxee Remote with XBMC?

D-Link Boxee Remote for PC & Mac

Needs a few changes to keyboard.xml to make it work properly due to the lack of an esc key. Other than that, this is possibly the best remote control for a HTPC available.

Works out of the box with Windows 7 and Ubuntu 10.04 so far. Only problem I have is that I did pickup second one and they are using the same channel. Since it's RF sometimes they pick up each others signals from rooms away.

I am using one on my linux based XBMC HTPC. It works quite well and I too had to make alterations to the keyboard.xml file to get it to function the way I wanted. The reason I bought it (aside from the beauty of the remote) is because it shows up as a keyboard and does not need any lirc translations.

This let me exit out of xbmc with the remote and then type in "startx" to get it back running again (which was awesome and prevents me from getting out a keyboard to do the little stuff).

I bought another one recently which I plan to use upstairs using a raspberry pi running openelec.
