This is an interesting topic. Does anyone know if someone makes a IR emitter card for PC's? I want to control all my AV equipment using a PC and program a touch panel with HTML. I haven't been able to find a way to fire out the IR strings from the PC. Has anyone done this?

The beni of using IR over RS-232 is the fact that you don't need to do any command string programming. All you need to do is learn the IR from the remote and assign it to a button. If you go hardwired, it's more reliable.
