       * An inexpensive "​Android"​ remote with USB receiver dongle (or bluetooth, if using a Pi with build-in bluetooth), which can be found in the normal places (eBay, Newegg, Amazon, etc) normally operate as as a remote with no special software needed. These remotes are offered under numerous brand names and model types, but typically work by emulating a wireless keyboard, but in the shape of a typical remote control. They may also feature "air mouse" features, but a mouse will not be required for this set up.       * An inexpensive "​Android"​ remote with USB receiver dongle (or bluetooth, if using a Pi with build-in bluetooth), which can be found in the normal places (eBay, Newegg, Amazon, etc) normally operate as as a remote with no special software needed.
