Schmartz went out of business at the end of January and there is no support or way to download software that I can tell.
Does anybody have the newest (1.7) ps3ir1kutil.exe firmware for the PS3IR-1000? I'm not sure I would risk loading firmware now on an unsupported device, but if it ever craps out on me it would be the first thing to try.
So what is the next best solution now then? The Harmony one?
EDIT: I guess the firmware is downloadable on the support forum, but I'm not sure it is the newest one. It might be. There are some other support docs there as well. I would pull everything now before that disappears too. So much for the lifetime warranty on the device.
