    Post IRMAN ..add another "eye"

    would the IRMAn work ok if i solder another "eye" onto it so it has two ?

    I wanted to have an extra one for the computer when I take it inside and the other mounted on the dash somewhere...
    anyone tried this or have any suggestions?

    I think it will work ok, aslong as the remote doesn't see them both at the same time.

    i am requesting some samples...
    I found a VERY interesting link about making an IRMAN /UIR device without a PIC to be used with Guirder only ( cost I think is $2)

    check it out

    I dont think that device would be very sensative compared to the irman. Tell us how you go with the two IRMan "eyes". I spose it could work....

    if it doesnt you could always run two IRmans on twin com ports!

    That $2 IR receiver will use more CPU than an IRMan because the IRMan uses a hardware decoder. The $2 one requires special software to decode the infrared and thus uses more CPU power. It won't be as compatible as the IRMan either (with software that is).

    Yes, I have been doing this for almost 1 yr now. If you take a look at my box, you will see what i mean.
