    BY the way, don't buy the TV Wonder. It's crap.
    Player: Pentium 166MMX, Amptron 598LMR MB w/onboard Sound, Video, LAN, 10.2 Gig Fujitsu Laptop HD, Arise 865 DC-DC Converter, Lexan Case, Custom Software w/Voice Interface, MS Access Based Playlists
    Car: 1986 Mazda RX-7 Turbo (highly modded), 1978 RX-7 Beater (Dead, parting out), 2001 Honda Insight
    "If one more body-kitted, cut-spring-lowered, farty-exhausted Civic revs on me at an intersection, I swear I'm going to get out of my car and cram their ridiculous double-decker aluminium wing firmly up their rump."

    the IRMAN converts received IR signals into 6byte codes which are then sent down the connected PC's serial port. Software on your computer can then read these received 6byte codes an react in anyway it sees fit.

    In my case, I wrote my own software to read the codes, and on receival performs the various functions in my custom mp3car player application. Other programs like Girder, etc... may read the signals then simulate the pressing of keyboard keys/mouse movements in windows to fool programs into thinking that the user themselves made the input - to give remote control capabilities to existing software packages... its a fantastic little hardware device.... and alot of good software supports it, and writing your own is a sinch too...


    clear things up?
    Yes very well thank you! I'd like to write my own software in it, but I am only second year comp. sci major and need to be shown everything but the writing of the code =) I think there is plenty of software out there that will prevent me from asking even more questions hehe..

    Yeah, ok thanks for the warning. I want to get the ATI - ALL IN WONDER but I can't get one for less than $20. I read that the tridents are less than 20, do you know where I can find them for that? On ebay I am coming up with nothing..

    To get into the bios try pressing either: delete, esc, F1 or F10 MOST computers use one of those for bios access.

    A All-in-wonder for $20?? Not bad at all actually. Must be an older model, but hey, TV out hasn't advanced much since they were released, so like it matters. Even though I own a few, I have to can say that ATI have the worst drivers.

    No I said I can't find an ALL IN WONDER for less than $20, I don't want to shell out alot of money for a video card. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
