Bruce, did you ever get a line a good serial port sniffer? I have a couple
of the newer MP3 Remotes. Starting HyperTerm and reading the generated
codes, it looks to be different than the older MouseRemote (I assumed it
would be). I'd like to get it working, the have yet another way to get
signals into the PC.
Also, does anyone know of an IRman like device, but is two way, send and
receive, and learning?

I think there is one in the UK, called PC Remote or something. The
Gadgeteer did a review awhile back. Looked pretty good. About $80 I think.

...takes you to a web site that describes a computer IR learning
remote that can be built for under 10 dollars US. I have built and used
this device with the free software that is available from the same site.
I have not yet incorporated this into mh. The free software has dll's
that allow it to be used from other programs, so hooking it into mh should
not be very difficult for someone who knows a little more perl than I know.
The device uses your pc to control the timing, so the software has to
disable interrupts while sending or learning a signal.
The only problem I had with this device is software related. The provided
software allows you to save the learned signal as a binary or ascii file.
The ascii files are supposed to be timing independent but slow to execute,
while the binaries are specific to your pc but run faster. Unfortunately
I could never get the ascii file option to work, so when I upgraded to a
faster processor, my files were no good any more because they are specific
to the execution speed of the pc. I have not put the device back into use
since then, but it is on my "to do" list.
