Sorry, IRDA is not going to work (see the FAQ)
IRDA and consumer electronics audio/video remote controls are not compatible. They have different ranges, frequencies and protocols.
Try building or buying a UIRT.
I use the USB-UIRT from Jon Rhees at http://home.earthlink.net/~jrhees/USBUIRT/index.htm

Welcome to girder, its the best tool ever created for your pc!
If you are not using Prontoedit, download it, you then have 100s of device remote codes built in that you can use. The IRman should be pretty straight forward, you need to enable the plugin, in girder under file>settings, go to the plugins tab and check off the IRman plugin, then you can simply learn IR commands to your events as you create them. Get started by going through the basic setup instructions on the girder help site and the rest will fall into place as you start to work with it.
