Hi,



I woul like to use my laptop with a projector, and be able to control the laptop's mediaplayer with a remote but the main thing is the laptop won't be in sight...


So my question would be, do i need a RF remote or can i control my laptop with a IR remote too ?


Thanks in advance.

And thanks for welcoming me too.

Not in sight would dictate an RF-based solution unless you augment an IR remote with an RF repeater kit (Rabbit) or a hardwired IR engine like the Xantech.

Thanks.


Both solutions seems complicated... apart from the rf-based solution.


What about Bluetooth technology ? Like the TiVo Slide ? It should work out of the box too like the rf-based solution ?


Thanks for the help, again.

A smart phone and Mobile Mouse or similar app works very well over wi-fi without buying any additional devices.

An alternative is to install Event Ghost and use the web server plugin. Then you can control your apps from any device using a web browser.
