Doh!!! I found it on the Companion CD. I guess
I was just used to Dell taking up half my desktop
computer with useless utilities and I thought
they'd do the same with the PDA.
That is why in the future we will be gunning for installation to ROM. Before we do THAT, I absolutely need to revise a few features and options to insure that the dramatically broader market will be able to enjoy it, and not have to be a mental possessed obsessed home theater nut like most of the rest of us. This ties in with my whole "PPC remote control is NOT for the masses" tirade, which I would be happy to expound upon another time.
So TR seems very cool. Although there's one thing
I've noticed: while the range seems to be good,
the IR seems to have to be pointed directly at
the device in order to work. And I'm not talking
about pointed it the opposite way...I'm talking
a few degrees off and it doesn't work. Is this
normal? Even my regular remotes can usually handle
a 45 degree radius around the device and still
work. Is this expected of the x30? Thanks!
That seems a LITTLE odd, but not VERY odd. I do not usually think about a limitation of beam angle, so either my test gear is more sensitive that your gear or I happen to be pointing derectly at my target device every time I test (which is damn likely). I guess I will try to quantify the relative beam angle of the Axim X3 and/or X30.
