Remote Buddy 1.8
IOSPIRIT today released Remote Buddy 1.8, a new version of its wireless remote control software, adding compatibility for the EyeTV remote controls. Users can control many different applications from Remote Buddy, such as iTunes, DVD player, iPhoto, VLC, and presentation software, but can also browse the hard drive, surf the web, or change system settings – the software contains support for over 100 applications and system parameters. Using the latest version, EyeTV owners can fully configure the key layout of the remote, providing access to the entire computer. Remote Buddy is available from the IOSPIRIT website for 20 Euros (~$30 US).
The developer says that most models of the EyeTV and their accompanying remotes are supported, with the exception of the EyeTV 250, 250 Plus, 300/310, 400/410, 500, and 610. Remote Buddy 1.8 also supports the TV sticks that are produced by El Gato, TerraTec and Pinnacle.
