View Full Version : serial remote control

January 22nd, 2009, 10:10 PM
I dont know anything about this stuff, but this site looks like it has a lot of people who may.

I have a device with a serial connection on it that i would like to control remotely, preferably with RF. Does anyone know where or how I could accomplish this?

I found some old "computer remotes" that are programmable and the receiver portion connects via a serial connection. Can I program the signal that the receiver sends after receiving the signal from the remote? Do these receivers simply retransmit the same signal?

Thanks for you help.
