    IR Help...

    I searched for IR and couldnt find anything specific to what I was looking for.
    I was looking for an IR receiver(preferably USB) so I can connect my cellphone(for GPRS Internet), and a webtv keyboard. Where could I get one that would be compatible with Windows XP? Also, could I use, both my cellphone, and the webtv keyboard at the same time? Would the software for the cellphone take over the port for the IR, from the software controlling the webtv keyboard? Or is it shared so I can have more than one device connected at the same time?

    Thank You
    -- Matt

    You can only connect one thing at a time to the IR port and here is a link to ebay items that you could try.

    Oh that sucks. Thanks for the info and link. I guess the only way to use both, is to buy 2 IR recievers, and keep the signals seperate?

    Read this thread here. I guess you need to program all the keys in manually.

    Maybe Grider could be used for this. You would have to program every key. But maybe there's another program that someone knows of that will work better?
