Reverse engineering of a Nevo C2 remote control from Arantius.com

Most recently I’ve switched to the “Nevo C2” remotes (also known as “Xsight Color” or “ARRX15G”), which have a graphical display built in. This makes it easy for me to deal with the huge array (TiVo, HTPC, plus eleven game consoles) of devices I’ve got hooked up. The built in software is pretty good, especially with RemoteMaster to customize it. But it’s pretty clunky in some areas. At one point I found a post with pictures of the inside of my remote. The post was meant to highlight the (very minor) differences between two similar models. In the full size image, one can just make out a big ARM chip in the middle. I got interested in discovering more about the innards of these things, and how hackable they could be with some reverse engineering.
