XBMC v13.1 "Gotham" has been released! See Gotham FAQ for details.
Flirc is a small USB device that plugs into your computer and pairs with your same television remote, or any remote that you want to use. It's basically a universal IR receiver. The best part about flirc is that it mimics a keyboard so every media center application understands it without any drivers. Flirc runs across all platforms.
It is a small project run by Jason Kotzin with a portion of each sale going to a cancer charity
