I've got all my AV gear in a rack, off in another room,
not in line of sight. I've been using an MX-3000 RF remote
to control it and that works well. I'd like to have a
way to use my new WM6 PDA (a Verizon XV6800 phone running
wm6) to control the gear in a similar fashion. I have
no desire to try using the IR interface on it. I'd like
to be able to send the commands to a PC over IP connections.
I can do it either with the EVDO internet connection
(presuming I have the outside firewall configured to pass
the traffic) or via WiFi on the home network.
I'm aware this would require some program running on a
PC to handle translating the received IP commands from
the remote out to IR. I've got a USB-UIRT that could
be used for the purpose.
hi, I just thought of doing something similar but not sure about the IP into IR conversion. Are there devices that can handle this (ideally over WiFi). What are you refering to with USB-UIRT? rgds cb
So, is anyone's PDA remote software capable of doing this?
