sierra055's location is listed as "The Land Down Under".
I didn't realize Australia was "close" to Montreal.

:-)

Yes he is. And he is also the very first one that have post to [email protected]. I thought shipping at the opposite of the earth would be a very good test for shipping method, resistance of my modification on long transit, and qualification with PS3 outside of Americas. He understood the risk. BTW to ship to Aussie with tracking # it's 56$. So you have to be convince if you go that way!

I'm in the UK. Bugger.

I have e-mailed you. Twice.

I love the idea as a temporary solution (until Sony pucker up and realise not all PS3's will be used by 5-year-old children).

Cheers for investing your time into this for us, although I'm not sure you're doing it to be nice. ;)

oex,

I'm sorry if I haven't not personnally replied to you.

To remind everyone once again. Since Daniel's article
I received emails, yes. But at the rate of 2 per hours
/ 24 on 24 / 7 on 7. So after 11 days I got 525 emails.
Many of have them request for multiple remotes (dozens/email).
So over all I got in 11 days over 700 requests.

I can't do: reply to everyone, assemble Rev 1 to everyone,
and finally work on the design of Rev 2 to simplify the
assembly.

Ben, if the volume is going to be a problem, I can point you to a manufacturing/shipping facility in Taiwan I've been involved with for a different product. Would allow you to build/ship large volumes (1,000-10,000+) without having to do it yourself. Inexpensive and reliable.

I sent you an email back on the 25th but with the volume it probably got lost.

I defenitely want one of these. I am in the UK but my dad lives in Vancouver so that could be an option for shipping. Very good work Ben, love the idea

Keep us updated on progress and add me to the list of people who will defenitely pay money for one of these (PS I did sent an e-mail from
Jamie [at] carojam[dot]demon[dot]co[dot]uk just so you don't count me twice :)

Hi everyone,

Clones are poping up. Yeap! I'm no more alone. I knew it would come. The next contender ... Sony?

When I'm ready for Rev 2, the Web site will be alive under www.ir4ps3.com

My Beta testing with Rev 1 is satisfactory to pursue the effort.

Regards,
Ben

There might be another solution to the power "problem". Don't turn off your PS3. I always run the Folding Home program during my PS3's downtime. Who knows, I might help cure a disease some day.

I can't wait to get mine. The first thing I'll do is dump that crappy USB dongle.

I'd do that if the heat output and fan noise of my PS3 wasn't so noticable. I mean it's OK when I'm doing something with it, but for those times when the TV's not on it's a bit annoying. I have the "original" PS3, I hear the 40gb model is somewhat better in this regard.

there is no Power OFF problem, we are currently have a solution for a 100% discrete ON and OFF command !!! also we added several extra goodies to our version of Remote Control the PS3 and also have extra goodies for the home cinema control or home living.

our test are successfull and we are building our first production sample !

Can someone explain what this means? Is this for the ir4ps3, or the new ir2bt, or something entirely different in the wrong thread?

The IR4PS3 supports discrete on and off functions.

The logic in Ben's unit handled this beautifully so I
now effectively have discrete on and off (albeit via more
macro like logic in Ben's "POWEROFF" code)

At least you corrected yourself in the above.

Please do not spread lies. You know full well that there isn't a discrete off function available for the PS3 with or without the product you are using. Someone can easily take what you've posted at face value. I know from previous posts "The Others" or Ben, doesn't want people mislead.

i rarely notice my 40gig is even on... in fact i only hear it if its the only piece of equipment powered on. something in my rack is louder than it is... PVR? TV?

so without reading this entire thread, is this soluiton available yet? i sent an email to said email add and havent had any response...?

Although this wasn't directed at you Stealth. I think the same would apply...

I read all emails though. All of them. And yes I'm doing
some discrimination. I select people close to me, I mean
not too far from me. You can't launch production of a
device if you don't do sufficient Beta testing before.
By selecting individuals very close to me, if a problem
arise, it will be easier for me to respond to the issue.

By the may, I made a joke. I did assembled 2 remotes yesterday
night.

One last thing, this is not my full time job, ... yet.

Regards,
Ben

As far as functionality. Imagine all the functions of the PS3's bluetooth remote but using IR commands. This does not include a power off discrete. He has preprogrammed a macro that will perform a power off, however you need to be at a certain place within the PS3's menus for it to work.
