View Full Version : HP5450 and Net Remote

June 26th, 2006, 06:07 PM

I'm trying to use the NR SW on an HP 5450 and I'm not having much sucess. The Ipaq has the Pocket PC 2003 Upgrade installed. the ROM based appication Nevo works a charm, but I want more functionality and bought Net Remote so I can use a customised CCF file.

I've also turned off the 'receive beams' after installing the CCF file and learning the basic remote codes - Power and AV inputs. NR says that I have sucessfully learned the codes, but trying the Ipaq in front of the TV yields a sucess once or maybe twice in 8 to 10 attempts.

Can anyone help? Is Nevo hogging the CIR com port?

Does it work better when you are closer / further away?

Hi Ben:

Despite the Ipaq advertising that it has a CIR port, the PDA does not work for distances greater than 1 m. That's not the range I need, so I gave up and sought another solution to the problem.

Thanks for the effort in responding....

Hi Rob -
The Ipaq does have a CIR port, but our IR support doesn't support it.

What was your other solution? Wireless, hopefully?
