SimpleRemote is a combination of a circuit and
software, used to emulate IR remote controls by a PC. The difference between
SimpleRemote and other PC-IR remote control
projects is the simplicity of its circuit.
Other PC-IR projects use a relatively-complex circuit, and simple software
to control it.
SimpleRemote uses a more
complex software, and an ultra-simple circuit.
That's why the SimpleRemote circuit is
so simple to build.
What can I do with SimpleRemote?
Because it enables you to emulate IR remote controls, you can use it to:
Control your stereo/TV/VCR/any other device as if it were a universal
Control IR-devices (VCR, DVD...) with home-automation scripts (e.g.,
dim lights + play DVD)
Title your MDs automatically
Have your PVR software change channels on your cable/satellite box
Many other possiblities...
SimpleRemote hardware circuit currnetly exists
only for serial (RS-232) communications port.
API is available in C/C++ (Windows/Linux), as a DLL (Windows), as
VB module (Windows), and as a Java package

hardware and downloaded the software, and you need remote codes for your
remote control, go to Remotes page.
