Hello, I would like to use Girder to receive input from the "buzztime" game controller. I tried the IGOR SFH-56 plugin, which works with my TV remotes, but it is not receiving any codes from the buzztime remote. Thank you in advance.

It doesn't say there that this uses IR - it just says it's wireless, so it could just as easily use RF

We were able to use our camera to see the infrared beam.

Cool. Do you know anyone nearby who has a USB-UIRT or possibly a Pronto or other learning remote? Might be worth trying to learn the codes on one of those if you can.

Thanks for your very prompt responses - you must spend as much time in front of your computer as I do.

I don't know anyone who even knows the category those devices might be in ... are they expensive? Can I buy one myself?
