Okay, maybe someone can try THIS on for size.
Much of it is over my head but maybe someone in the list could make some
sense of it. There are three pages. Look at the last one
PC IR Remote Control
This page gives some information on a PC based IR remote control system I've
developed for computer control of TV, video, satellite and hifi equipment
I have used an IBM compatible, so the software here is for such a machine,
however I guess that it is straightforward (perhaps easier) to implement
this on another type of machine.
Here are descriptions of:
Remote control IR signals.
I have used information from various sources, which are acknowledged here.

comments or mistakes, please contact me at the address below.
ENJOY! However, please read my disclaimer! if you feel the need to.
