 +===== launch0r =====
 +The launch0r.py script allows you to control a USB r0ketlaunch0r from your r0ket wirelessly using [[rem0te]]
 +One r0ket acts as a Bridge, to with other r0kets can connect using the rem0te l0dable.
 +   - Install the game server libarys as described above
 +   - Install hidapi bindings https://​github.com/​rene-dev/​cython-hidapi/​
 +   - Flash the bridge firmware to your r0ket
 +   - Edit the device in https://​github.com/​rene-dev/​r0ket/​blob/​master/​tools/​game/​launch0r.py
 +   - Start the script, and connect from another r0ket using the [[rem0te]] l0dable
 +   - Have fun!
 +
 +===== tvr0tator =====
 +This small program examines your DVB-T TV signal strength (V4L DVB-Stack) and rotates the r0ketlauncher with an attached DVB-antenna to achieve the best aligment of the antenna.
 +   - Install dvbsnoop and libusb
 +   - compile the source: [[tvr0tator.c|tvr0tator.c]] with //gcc -o tvr0tator tvr0tator.c -lusb//
 +   - start your favourite DVB Viewer (like mplayer)
 +   - run ./tvr0tator
 +   - have fun watching tv (or c3 streams) with best signal-strength!
 +
 +   * Troubleshooting:​ usbhid kernel module could claim exclusive right of the r0ketlauncher,​ so //rmmod usbhid// or use //​libhid-detach-device 07ca:a815// available in the libhid package
