  • computer remote control

    I know there a few remotes out there to use with the computer, but has anone made their computer into a remote? Wat I want to be able to do it rea in IR codes to the computer, and then take a bitmap, and define certain area that when clicked will send whatever IR code I tell it out of some sort of IR transmitter on a wire (ie ir blaster). I am looking to be able to control things with my computer that come with a remote. This would let you use a computer to control a factory stereo or XM receiver. Please let me know if you can do this and how.

      If you know how to program and you know the control codes, it's as simple as wiring an IR LED to the serial port.
      Best regards,
