    My carputer is being built into a confined space. At this point, adding a PCI is not an option.

    So what about the PAC + IR USB + Girder? Girder is meant to work with IR. The only issue is that the FIR connector is not compatible. So the last option for me is an external IR interface. It seems simple enough... "seem" being the operative word.

    When I get off work (yes I'm working on a Sunday and it sucks), I'll sign up to Girder's forum and see if anyone there knows of anything that could be used.

    Do I have to use IR-connection in order to use Girder, or can I connect the steering wheel remote to the computer through the COM-port?

    You can't just hotwire it from what I know. You would have to build a small interface of some kind.

    This seems like something that needs a simple step-by-step solution. I have found a lot of people with a lot of different ideas, but none were plug-and-play or suitable for every sittuation.

    This carputer stuff is very new and there seems to be a lot of gaps that needs filling. But there are a lot of smart people here, and it's just a matter of time before simple solutions are realized.

    It looks like what I may need is a USB-UIRT with the PAC SWI-X, along with girder.

    There are other USB IR's that I came across. I may post other findings later. So far there are solutions, but nothing cheap.

    wanna build a USB interface yourself?

    that would be cheap.

    I built one and it works great. only thing is you need to "register" the shareware driver.
