Remote Or Wireless Pad?
Posted 10 April 2007 - 06:24 PM
For a start, getting a wireless pad means it can be used for games also. It also doesnt have to have line of sight like a remote has to and im already familiar with the controls for a pad. However, a remote is more intuitive for other people, especially when controlling video. It also seems like the more natural instrument to use for XBMC. What would people suggest?

agree with last post , volume/seek with the analogue stick is too good a feature to lose by going to remote.
and yeah you don't have to worry about line of sight either.
i have a learning remote and it works great with xbox, but i still use the pad all the time.

The only thing that confuses me is that it doesnt have very many buttons:
So how does stuff like info, fast skipping, volume control etc work?
It has an info button on the remote.. it also has a fast forward button.. volume up in No 3, volume doen is Key No 6, mute is Key No 9.. works well.. but the game pads is a bit fast when scrolling through screens etc..
Hope that helps..

but it's just nice to not have to worry about distance when you're using the remote, so I can be in the kitchen making dinner and still control the music.
Yeah, but you have to worry about line of sight. I often sit outside and control my music with my logitech wireless controller. Distance is no issue.
