This version doesn't support OMAP850 and Samsung processors yet. It supports only Intel StrongARM (SA1110, SA1100), Intel XScale (PXA250, 255, 260, 270)
It means that this version won't work on new PDAs with OMAP processors, including popular models such as MDA

RemoteControl II, v2.03, has released.

They have added the support for devices with Samsung CPU's (S3C2410, S3C2440).
Have tested this with my iPAQ rx3715 and get a IR transmit range of > 10m (32feet)!
I assume the support for TI OMAPS will be added too.

    Sorry, no idea if also a version for Palm OS is planned. I suggest to ask WinCESoft.
    Isn't there a Windows CE emulator for Palm OS ? :)

    Any updates on this software from users ?

    I have an iPAQ rx3715 and wondering what this software would be like on it. Also I have an Ipaq H5550 PDA which does not have IR output, have there been any further developments in the area of adding lug in IR ports to this PDA ?

    Many thanks

    The iPAQ RX3715 works very well with RC II.
