You do need some type of IR input device for the PC... I use the slinke which also controls my 2 CD jukeboxes. Also, you'll want to use a program called girder. Do a search in the HTPC forum for more info, or go here:

Good luck.

David's got it - you need two things:


1) A device to receive the IR into your PC (IRMan, Slink-e, etc)


2) Software to process the IR and performs tasks (Girder is my favorite)

I use my slinke to coordinate the audio control via X10 RF remote. Being a big Homeseer user, whcih has a slinke plug-in, it also benefits my home automation setup.
