Hello,

I'm looking for an infrared receiver, with that I also can switch on my pc! Either serial, but better usb! And Lirc has to support it!

Is UIRT2 the right one for me? And if so, where can I order this?

why do you state LIRC has to support it?

I don't quite understand the question - if you have a LIRC you don't want another device.

if you plan on using LIRC software then why you need girder and a different device?

LIRC is not a device that will boot up an off computer.

from USB you won't be able to power on the comp.


I suggest a UIRT and you can go to luc degrande's website

to order kits to build em, that's the best "poweron" ir sensor for your computer.

hope this helps.

Have you thought about a PS/2 IR keyboard and a learning remote? (this is the only combination that will work, save for the UIRT2...)
