    IRMan vs. Laptop IRPort

    I was wondering a little bit about the IR port on the back of this laptop. I've seen them on plenty of laptops, but none are ever really used. Of course having a remote control to control Winamp is a must .. and I see everyone buying IRMan's and stuff ... can the IRPort on a laptop be trained to do the same thing??

    Can't say for sure but i'd doubt it...... they are used to transfer files..... and if u go on the wrong angle then they don't work..... so even if you did get it working with a remote (which i doubt) then it would suck!

    IRDA interfaces on notebooks and desktop PC's are for short distance/high speed transmission. They are different from IR signals used for remote controls (large distance/low speed). There are some drivers to use an IRDA interface for RC IR reception, but performance remains poor. I can only recommend to use a real UIR (Universal Infrared Receiver). The most advanced model is the UIRT2 (Universal Infrared Receiver/Transmitter). This device can also power on (restore from hybernate, etc) your PC with a normal remotre control.

    In a forum about car audio, and in its own thread.
