I'm hoping to find someone who's been over this ground before.
I want to get what is apparently one of the best FM tuners to come along in years -
the Sony XDR-F1HD. It is said to do an excellent job with regular FM, but also does
HD Radio, and I do have an HD Radio signal I'm interested in.
Now, I want more than to plug this into my stereo. I record from radio every week
with the Windows app 'Radiator' and a USB-controllable FM radio. I'd like to extend
that to HD Radio by being able to control the Sony from a computer. I'd also like to
break out of Windows and run an open source application to send the IR commands.
I would need hardware to send IR codes, Solaris or Linux software to talk to the
hardware, and a way to find or capture the correct IR codes from the Sony remote.
I have a Harmony 680 which I know can learn the codes, if that helps. I've seen
some stuff that seems expensive and like overkill for using a remote to control the
computer; I mostly want the computer to emit IR, though detecting the codes may
Has anyone done research that would apply here?

we are just waiting for an 'application' that will allow Harmony Remote users to use their Harmonies to take over the World, obviously the remote has the in-built power to perform this task it's just a matter of a simple program.
sorry for the sarcasm.
