    I am not too familar with the IR scene and have a few questions. How does this remote work with the target software? What are the chances a program could be written to use this remote?

    I am working on a piece for my home entertainment center, and I do not know which program(s) I am going to use. I do know that I want to have a remote. What do you guys think?

    Thanks!

    Probably interested in purchase.
    System in the works:
    Celeron 850 or PIII 933, SB Live! Value into a stock 4 channel amp, ATI vid, 10.4" sharp LCD w/ allen's controller, Elo SW touchscreen overlay and controller, GPS, TV tuner, FW DVD drive, 4 port serial card, and some other stuff....

    Loads of ideas.

    Well.. the main advantage to using a program like Girder (which supports this remote) is that it can be used to control just about any existing software by emulating either keypress/mouse movements or the backend windows' messaging system (SendMessage and such). Its really easy to use for the most part, if you have problems you can ask me (I'm pretty knowledged with girder and have written a few plugins for it) or go on their discussion board and ask.
