  • Remote for Windows

    Hi, this is probably a newbie question but that's what I am
    So, I decided to go with windows 95. And i want to use a remote controller to control the system. I found a site that explains how to do it for Linux, but can you guys tell me how to do it under windows? All i know is that I'll have to buy infrared sensor from radio Shack and wire it to my serial port, then it need some software I guess.
    Links will be appreciated!
    Thank you.

    Actually most people use IRman from evation.com. IRman allows you to use any universal remote control to control Windows. You might want to try to use the search function.

      Also, there's the Packard Bell Fast Media remote. They are available pretty cheaply, and have good third party software support. Again, a search should turn up all the info...
