    nice turnaround - using the stock part for custom apps...

    there should be a similar hack to xenarc or any other device with an IR eye...

    what's to gain from a remote in the car?

    well, control the PC differently, even have specific buttons do SERIES of action.
    if you want to do it, you can. You should give a try to Girder and figure out yourself... but be aware: once you start remote controlling your PC, there's no way back.

    You don't use the lilliput remote you use any other remote with more buttons that can be programmed to to go things, anything with girder

    What could possibly go wrong? I mean, if the hack would involve flashing some custom made bios or whatever, I would hesitate too. But there's really no risk in linking a simple 5V open collector output to a serial input which was originally designed to handle voltages between -12 and +12V.

    Here's an image of the lilli's IR output, taken with a storage scope. Vertical scale is set at 2 volts/div, ground level is at the vertical center. Maybe this will boost your confidence

    I think any stock 3-pin IR eye will work.
    Good find, thanks. Girder is hard to understand without a proper howto.

    I am sure there is. If you can take a close up picture of the IR eye and its surrounding components, I might be able to help. Any numbers on that IR eye?

    K thx for the info.. guess its time to hack the ole lilli open again. All i would really want is control over playback functions in RR/winamp and maybe the ability to switch between music and gps mode. I take it these things are acheivable thru girder? If all this pans out i just might forget about replacing my touch screen!

    Yeah girder should allow you to do what you want, once you understand it all that is!
