    Exclamation Looking for best software for packard bell IR remote....

    I got this remote cuz of a positive reassurance of an earlier post, but the software they recommended(uICE, WinLRIC) did not work for me. When i started uICE it immediantly shutdown and said "trial for this product is over, please register" and WinLIRC wouldn't even work when i started it, it said "cannot start server. any help would be appreciated! thanks.

    I had a little bit of success getting those two programs to work with the PB remote. But, I had to hit the button on the remote like 25 times before the software would recognize one single command, so I finally gave up on using it. The remote wouldn't send the same signal two times in a row.

    I know, you probably paid like $7 for that remote, right? Well, there's a reason why it's so cheap... it doesn't work.

    My advice: throw the Packard Bell remote away. It's junk. I've got a Keyspan USB media remote that works great (costs about $35-$50 now I think). I've also heard good things about the irman.

    The remote itself is not that bad. The way the reciever works is pretty bad. I have written a dll that will read the remote signals and tell you what buttons were pushed. It does require a pretty fast computer, I'd say at least a P166. If anyone is wanting to develop software to utilize this remote then send me an email and I'll get that dll out to you.

    ok i will need that DLL or better yet, the code let me see if i can optimize it. I am willing to add support to the packadbell remote, but don't feel like spending to much time doing the research and coding it. So please send me the source code. And you guys that want me to add it to CobraIII should start begging wexdafid to send me the source code.
    Thanks

    How about support for the Animax Multimedia remote? (www.animax.no)
