I have a custom made reseiver/transmiter in
I also have a winfast xp deluxe PCI tuner with an
infrared receiver in COM2
I had them both connected and I was using a winlirc
client made in VB to control my amplifier, my satelite receiver and the winfast
PVR program. Until now I beleived that the commands sent by the trasmiter where
received by the winfast receiver and so I could control Winfast PVR. Yesterday I
removed the Winfast IR receiver from COM2 because I wanted to use it for
something else. And what I found was that Winfast PVR was still receiving the
commands from my VB application allthough the winfast infrared receiver was
How is this done. Is winfast PVR listening to the
TCP port of winLIRC or does intersept the com port ?
I also tried the following. I close winLIRC server
and trid to send command to WINFAST. Nothing happened. I loaded winLIRC again
and it was working. So I must conclude that Winfast PVR is listening to winLIRC.
Is this documented anywhere , or I just discovered America again ?
