The uses have been to fling files at another IrDA equipped laptop, printing to IrDA printers and your PDA sync.
While some effort was made (OmniRemote) to make the PDA double as a remote control, I found it too weak to go past a few feet.
I can imagine changing channels with the laptops.
Honey, can you put it on channel 3?
Just a few minutes while I boot up the remote...
Would it be possible to control a media player (WMP or WinAmp or ANYTHING) via my IR port on my laptop and a remote?
Secondly, what else is my IR port on my laptop good for, other than PDA sync?
Comments, thoughts, solutions are GREATLY appreciated!
