View Full Version : UIRT or Tira?

Hello guys!

I need to buy an infrared receiver/transmitter for controlling my cable TV box through my computer. Should I buy a Tira or a UIRT? Which of them is better, and why? I appreciate your feedback.

I see no reason to consider anything but the USB-UIRT, since it woks very reliably and problem free with both Girder and NetRetmote. I have been running it for 3 or 4 years, and I'm very satisfied. And if you modify it a little bit you should have power from the rear jack to drive at least 10 IR emitters.

Thank you for your reply! One more question. What's your preference regarding Girder and NetRemote?

Both, of course! :D I use them for different purposes, but I use them almost all day long.

The only purpose for me would be controlling my cable TV box. So, which software is better for that?

Girder for automated control.
