    Will Girder work to control IR devices such as a TV, VCR, PVR,....etc from the PC? I am looking into what device I will use to do the receiving/transmitting of the IR. I may build one from http://www.lirc.org/

    From what I read it looks Girder was originally made to control the PC from a remote, but it seems to be developed into much more.

    Also I see that it can work through TCP/IP. Does that mean that I should be able to configure it so I can access and run it from my LAN and also have it run on my webserver?

    I now have 1 driver in girder that supports
    receiving as well as sending signals, it is
    for the RedRat2. But a driver for lirc could
    be made as well.

    And yes via the TCP/IP plugin you can control
    girder from across the globe.

    Thanks Ron. That's what I figured, I now need to see if I can get a friend to help write a driver for the lirc. I dont have that kind of cash right now to buy the RedRat just yet.

    johnmacd,

    If you are gonna start on that driver,
    please let me know, a input output driver
    is not trivial due to the nature of girders
    plugin mechanism, but i have a frame work
    for that.

    Also look at :
    WLirc this is the driver you need to
    send and receive. The source code is included
    so that helps a lot.

    Regards,
    Ron

    I just looked at the WLirc site and it led me to the WinLirc site. This last one, WinLirc, appears to use TCPIP sockets as the reporting mechanism and *might* work unchanged with the TCPIP support already in Girder, no?

    Aaaah, first posts are the BEST!

    For receiving there is a winlirc
    driver available. Transmitting is something
    totally different.
