What software packages are available that will allow you to send IR codes from your pc?



(I know I will need some type of IR emitter/blaster)


What I'm looking to do is turn an older pc and 15" touch panel into a creston type of device....are there any options???


I've seen alot of Pocket PC options...but nothing for Win 9x/2000/XP


Any help or suggestions would be great.


Thanks,


Squid

Here are some solutions:


UIRT2 (Rx/Tx)

USB-UIRT (Rx/Tx)

IrMan2 (Rx/Tx)

Slinke(Tx)

Tira-1 (Tx)


These are often being discussed on the HTPC section of this forum, or at www.girder.nl

USB-UIRT and girder is what I use, works well but there is a learning curve. Once you have it figured out though, it is almost limitless.

I'm currently using myHTPC ( www.myHTPC.net ) as my main front end, combined with Girder ( www.girder.nl ) for automation (for instance, as soon as I start Theatertek or powerDVD, girder will fire some IR commands to turn on my surround sound system, adjust my projector to widescreen if need be etc.)


I am about to use Netremote ( www.netremote.org ) both as an 'On screen remote' and with a pocketPC, using my UIRT2 to send IR signals to my external equipment.


(Some other people use mainlobby for similar results)
