And sometimes I...

Re: installing Infrared

But can FLIRC emulate more than one remote at once I have looked at the link given to me by fruitoftheloom & for between £2.60 & £4.80 these seem an ideal & inexpensive way to achieve what I want......but just wondered if anyone who had used these & then got the FLIRC if they thought...

Re: installing Infrared

Thanks fruitoftheloom
these look ideal & only around £3 to £6

But is FLIRC the ultimate solution, I can get one for £16. Using FLIRC can more than one remote at once be programmed & can it work on any USB port (tv as well as PC), can FLIRC program literally any remote including a sky remote

Re: installing Infrared & using FLIRC

OK, the above solution from the poster 'joan' is certainly worth considering & worth a try due to the very low cost. But if 'price' was not a consideration but rather 'great result' and 'neatness' ( no cumbersome wires hanging outside the case) what would you go for?? I've just been reading abou...

Re: installing Infrared

joan
how is this fitted to the RPI.....will the wires hang outside of the case or will it all fit neatly inside?
Will the IR work with other remotes, other than the one it comes with
thanks
