    Default All I want to do is...

    I've read manuals and tried to understand the hardware. Here is what I want to do:

    I want to have a laptop sitting next to me. On the screen I want to have buttons I have created that say things like: "Cable - Channel 9" and "Sound - up" and "TV input 5 - Xbox on". I use my mouse to point to a button and click it. The result does what the button says.

    I can't figure out the combination of hardware and software I purchase to do this. I can write code so I can modify snippets. I considered using a Parallax Basic Stamp and circuity but that might take hundreds of hours.

    Thanks for your time and guidance.

    Girder, NetRemote and the PIR1 should be all you need.

    NetRemote provides the graphical interface
    PIR1 will learn and output the IR
    Girder handles interaction between NetRemote and the PIR1

    Girder 6.0 - Elk M1 Gold - JRMC 11.1 w/ M-Audio Delta 410 - NetRemote - BlueIris DVR
    Girder 6 Plugins - Elk M1/EZ8, Pushover Connector and more on the way.

    Thanks for your help. I just could not get the connection between Girder and NetRemote. Hands-on works the best for me.
    Purchased PIR-1, trial Girder, trial NetRemote and I should be set for 30 days.
