Find And Run Robot / Re: Powershell problems
« on: September 08, 2021, 07:24 AM »
Sooooo yesterday I could not do it and today, five minutes after writing the post, I find a solution.....

I looked for powershell and run it from farr, and it worked, so I rigth clicked to create an alias and added the command afterwards.
It works like a charm!

I just type the solution in case someone finds this problem!

Find And Run Robot / Powershell problems
« on: September 08, 2021, 07:15 AM »
Hello everybody, I am having a weird problem.

I want to create a list of aliases to use ssh on powershell ( because security reasons, there are systems I need to use via local port tunneled via SSH). The problem is I have quite a few and thougth about ordering them in an alias.

As an example, let's think I wanna run this:
powershell -noExit -Command "ssh"

If I run it (Windows + R, run) it works and shows the screen where ssh informs me that I need to enter some options.
If I open FARR, and type
run powershell -noExit -Command "ssh"
I get a command not found error.... (this also happens on an alias, using shellexec)

Any ideas? I am quite lost with this behaviour....

Here you can find it for 30 GBP

This gadget made my XBMC work like a charm. This allows my Zotac miniPC to receive the keystrokes on my TV remote control, allowing me to use my normal remote to manage my computer.

Out of the box, it worked with no further config after installing the drivers provided. The default mapping of the remote was quite good (I did not find the need to customize it in a couple of months), but it can be fully customized to suit your need (here you have more information on this).

The best point of it? It has made my media center really simple to use... even my ganny know how to use it! No more need of other remote and (IMHO) much more elegant than having universal remotes...

Also, it is quite small and its powered by USB (image for reference, next to my wife's iPod and the included cables):

I bought a Zotac mini PC. Atom microprocessor ensures a low power consumption.
Zotac + MediaMonkey (huge music library to manage) + XBMC = AWESOME.

Also, as a remote, I use my TV Remote (, so it is quite user friendly, you do not need to swith remote, just go to the HDMI port of the media center, and keep using it.

This was a quite cost-effective solution (300€ Zotac + 100€ 4TB USB3.0 hard disk + 30€ USB - CEC adapter), and everything works together like a charm. The guys of Pulse Eight also provide a pre-compiled version of XBMC with their drivers & plugins to ensure an easy operation.
