simplexbmcremote is a simple application for controlling XBMC remotely via the EventServer. It can navigate your collections, start, pause, and stop media, skip forward and backward, control the volume, and switch the subtitles. It is available on the Maemo5 (N900), MeeGo Harmattan (N9/N950), and Symbian^3.
halttimer waits for LIRC events or SIGUSR1 and sets a timer which will initiate the shutdown sequence (via "sudo halt" by default) when the time is up. The timer's timeout decreases with each keypress by a specified amount of time. Visualization is done using an on-screen-display (OSD).
