Thread: Using Laptop IR port with a Remote?

    Using Laptop IR port with a Remote?

    Is it possible to use my laptop IR port, with my hauppauge remote - or do they use an entirely different 'type' of IR?

    If so, are their any known remote that use 'laptop IR'?

    Laptop ir ports are (usually) of IRDA type, which is not compatible with the Hauppauge remote. You might be able to get it to work with a Palm or the likes.

    I seem to remember something about IRDA headers while doing some remote control research. I might have found it when I was trying out winlrc. It was info about adapting the IRDA header in a desktop PC so it can receive IR commands from a regular remote. But, I dont think it applies to a Laptop. The IR Port is usually hardwired to the mobo on a laptop.

    Sorry
