Not sure what you mean by "can't use it for network configuration" ??

http://www.mediafire.com/?7oaw64t63hq33td

here is the package for anyone else who wants it....

I added it so that you can add your own IP or dyndns or No Ip settings...

i will get a pic of the keyboard tomorrow and we can see about getting the keyboard section working with the normal keyboard screen and not just the Amazon.

please test it out and leave comments.

edit : maybe someone can figure out how to stop the refresh of the page on the iPhone... it doesn't show on the webpage at all

By network config, I mean configuring the wfi if you lost the remote when you go on vacation, and if you want to use the keyboard without pressing submit, you need to use ajax to send a request on an onkeyup event, and edit the keyboard script for one character, and also you need some way of storing the last keyboard position

I've done a TiVo network remote in PHP before, so I have some experience in this area. The TiVo and Roku network remote protocols are very similar.

Use ajax requests to eliminate refreshing.

There's one very good reason to not host remotely. Anyone who discovers the address can send commands to the Roku. It might not be possible to do any truly destructive damage, but they'll be able to do pause/fast forward/reverse, send you to the home screen, etc. Possibly while you are trying to watch something. At the VERY least, you should use basic authentication to password protect the page. But, if your desktop, iphone, and roku are all on the same network, then you could run the server on the desktop and access the remote from the iphone. Or just use one of the iPhone Roku remotes in the app store. If I had a bunch of network devices like the DS, and iPhone, and other handheld wifi browser devices, I'd definitely run the server(of course I have have several other servers running at any given moment already).

Regarding "network configuration": The Roku can't change network settings with network remotes because it disconnects itself from the network during the process, so you won't be able send commands at that point to finish the changes. The only recourse at that point is an IR remote.

Which is why I keep begging Roku to add USB Keyboard Support. That way you can at Least Connect the Box to your Network and then use Other Means to Control your Roku (ie: iPhone App or This) in the case you lost your Remote. That way you don't have to wait for a new IR Remote to come in the mail, especially if you don't use the IR Remote much anyway.

That would be quite helpful for XR owners(and XD owners, when it comes out) , but what about the other models that don't have usb ports?

Well I can't think of any other way for the other boxes except having a 2nd Remote with Learning Functions already Set-Up.
