USB IR stick to COM port??
Hello. I was woindering if anyone could help.
I have my car pc running Windows XP on a Epia 800 Motherboard. I have a small USB IR device from which I would liek to use to control my pc with. I have been reading about it and most people say that once you install the USB device you can configure it to be setup as a COM port. When in install my USB device is add's a new section under my device manager called USB devices not universal serial bus. I am unable to configure anything about it. I believe somehow I can setup a USB to serial bridge so that I can setup the USB IR device to be recognized on a COM port so that all the frontend programs will find it. I know the RS232 serial IR's work fine but I want to use a USB controller.. Can anyone tell me how i can do this please or link me to some software that will do this.
