I've recently purchased a Minimig with ARM controller (still waiting for it though), and I'm planning to use it in my living room for watching demos. I wanted to ask, if there's a remote controller that I can plug in and be able to use Minimig from my couch? For instance, I have already my CDTV with the remote control and TinyLauncher is being executed everytime I turn it on, so I can sit comfortably and watch any OCS/ECS demo I like. Is there that possibility for Minimig?

A remote control function is not implemented into the core.
Also an IR-receiver is not present on the board.

But you can use any wireless keyboard/mouse set supporting the PS2 protocoll.
Until now most of this works with Minimig but some possibly may show prooblems.

Thanks for the reply. All wireless keyboards and mice I can find comes with USB, so I bet that there will be no problem using a PS2->USB adapter?

Most USB input device have PS2 protocol support.
But some are USB only! I own a Logitec mouse that can not "talk" PS2 and do not work on Minimig or any PC with an adapter.

To be sure, the desired model need to be tested first before buying it.
