That isn't a USB UIRT - just an IrDA USB receiver.

You may be able to use it as a HID device, but somehow I doubt it will be very successful.

.....and Girder will fihd this reciever automatically,or should i set it by myself,or enable some plugin?

Enable the HID plugin and see whether the device appears in the list in the HID plugin's settings.

Im not sure :confused:.In device manager reciever appears like standard HID device,but in Girder i see two bluetooth HID devices.

Hmm... I don't think this is a HID device in that case - which means that there's next to no chance of this working with Girder.

Personally, I'd recommend either a USB-UIRT (www.usbuirt.com) or an IrTrans (www.irtrans.com), but others here have used Igor Cesko's device - http://www.cesko.host.sk/IgorPlugUSB/IgorPlug-USB%20(AVR)_eng.htm - which is a bit cheaper
