Probably you caught your self laying comfortably and watching movie on PC screen. But when you need to change volume or pause you have to leave comfort zone. And then you start thing of remote control. Vinod didn’t want to face this problem again and started building simple USB adapter that would accept TV remote RC5 commands and control PC mouse.
As Vinod says, implementation is really simple as most of work is already done in V-USB examples. All he had to do is to add RC5 decoding and sending proper mouse commands to PC from Atmega8. There is also no need for USB drivers as it works using USB HID class. It should work fine on windows, Linux or MacOS. Functionality include 8 direction mouse pointer move with number keys 2, 4, 6, 8, 1, 3, 7, 9; accelerated mouse pointer move by holding buttons for longer time; right click – 0 button; left click – remote button 5; and volume keys act as mouse wheel.
