Yes it does work well, and it is a nice remote (this is exactly the same remote as the RS 15-2116 with the addition of a RF emitter and a RF to IR converter, allowing you to use the remote without line of sight...).


Just in case this wasn't originally clear, this is an IR only remote (the RF capability only works with the bundled receiver and can only be used to extend the reach of the remote)


Now, I paid $50 for it... I wish I had waited a bit as I have not yet used the RF to IR converter...

It is also a JP1 programmable remote. You can make it do almost anything you want. You will still need a IR receiver for your PC.

Would the Hauppauge IR Reciever work?

It should work (these remotes have 2 IR leds and seem to work well with pretty much anything)...


By the way, i STRONGLY recommend that you get a JP1 cable and learn about what it allows to do (this is a very powerful accessory for configuring the remote, backing up your settings on a computer, adding new devices to the default database... the sky is the limit, but some advanced features are not intuitive).

Ditto...


JP1 isn't for everybody, but if you like "tinkering" or you hate remote proliferation, then JP1 capable remotes are the way to go. I don't use the manufacturer's remotes for any of my equipment. In my living room, my Radio Shack remote controls two TiVo's, my Hipix, my Panasonic DVD player, my VCR, and my Toshiba TV. I use macro's on the remote input buttons to switch the TV input AND select what the remote is controlling. For the TiVo's, the macros also bring up the Now Showing screen. It makes all the equipment "family" friendly to use.

Hi,


Just wondering if this remote will be able to learn ir code from airboard and used with Girder to control HTPC ?


Thanks.

wlo,


This is where the power of JP1 kicks in: you can add a device to the built-in database which contains all the IR codes for the airboard (it may require some experimentation if you need to use modifier keys such as shift, alt, control... but everything is possible).


Alternatively you can use the learning capabilities of the remote to emulate the airboard (you'll be 'memory' limited to about 20-25 learned keys then, and will notice that teaching Airboard keys to the remote requires quite a bit of trial and error)
