  • Using Tablet PC as a Remote Control

    I have found many programs to make my tablet pc (Currently in my GF's car) in to a TV/DVD/VCR/SAT/CBL remote control using the IR Receiver built in.

    The Tablet is a Intermec 6642.

    What I wanted to do (and I dd and a whole lot) is use the tablet as a remote control for my PS2.

    I don't want to use it as a controller, I want to use it for the DVD player aspects of the PS2.

    Anyone know any program that comes close to doing this?

    I had high hopes for a freeware called Infrared Remote Manager 1.7, but it ended up not working.

    BTW, Mods, I wasn't sure whether or not this should go anywhere else, so I put it in OT. If you think it should be moved, go ahead.

    Peace,

    Rafster

      I was wondering whether CQC can do this [www.charmedquark.com, see my other OT post], but it's both 1) huge overkill/too expensive [$200 gets you a full HT/HA solution, but you're looking at freeware], and 2) I don't know squat about the PS2 so I don't know if it'll work.

      Wasn't going to post this as it doesn't actually help you, but as long as no one else responded and you're bumping...

        It looks promising....

        I'll give it a whirl and let you know what I find out.

        Thanks for the find..
