i'm guessing "enter" and "start" put the remote in the "discoverable" mode.

try to do 'hcicontrol inquiry' to see if you can discover ps3 remote.
once you know ps3 bd_addr you should be able to run sdp discovery,
i.e. 'sdpcontrol -a ps3_bd_addr browse' that may return the list of
supported services. i'm guessing ps3 remote will probably support hid
service, so if 'browse' command will not return anything, you might
want to try to search for hid service, i.e. 'sdpcontrol -a ps3_bd_addr
search hid'

once you know what services are offered, we can go from there.
