    DIY IR Receiver

    Here is a link to allow you to make your own IR receiver to work with any 9-pin Serial Port ....

    Untested but looks like it could be useful ...... Also has links to various IR Software

    == Running MediaEngine for the front end whilst I build a front end in VB.NET, but may stick with ME 2.0 ==

    Re: DIY IR Receiver

    we have covered this type of IR device in the past.... they do work, but are VERY CPU intensive, since all the decoding/interigation of the incomming IR signal need to be done by the CPU.

    Unlike the IRMan, which uses a PIC chip to handle the bulk of the processing needs, freeing up the CPU and making the whole system a lot more accurate, since the IRMan is dedicated to the one task, unlike using the CPU which has to decode mp3's/divx/etc...

    try ....
    Project - GAME OVER :(
