I've got a buffalo IR 100 repeater in my theater. I'm getting ready to add an HTPC and I'm trying to figure out how to connect it to the IR system.
Everything I've found so far assumes a flasher is outputting to a receiver connected to the device which converts the IR to a serial signal that control software can process.
Since the HTPC doesn't have an IR receiver, I'm thinking that I should be able to wire directly from one of the flasher outputs to the serial port. I'm just not sure how to do that.
Apologies if this has been asked and answered a million times. Haven't had any luck Googling it but I don't know the magic keywords.
