As we all move our PCs from the office to the living room, this is an essential plug. c-


Not Compatible - Looks like a great utility! I have a ACER Laptop (NLi 4150) with built-in Infrared Port. It is not a COM port so not able to use it. Can anyone suggest me how to use it? Thanks. [email protected] - August 24, 2005 by Abhishek Hardas

Excellent! - This got to be the best plugin in here, with it I can change tracks without getting out of the sofa! You even don't have to buy an expensive IRman, you can build a UIR (Universal Infrared Receiver) yourself! - February 28, 2003 by Oystein Raknes

Perfect and pretty. - This plugin is perfect for us laisy guys who wants to skip a song etc.without moving your ass. Very very good! Build an UIR for (20?) and relax... - November 3, 2002 by Fredrik Nyholm

Control me, baby! - Well i have to say this plugin made my day....;) Got the IR-ax (at only dutch) installed the plugin and YES it works, fantastic! - November 21, 2001 by Rik Vandewall

Rules - I think this plugin rules, but with a pctv remote control it isn't easy to install. But when it works it is the most greatest plugin ever!!! - July 7, 2001 by Koen ?

Sweet! - I have both the IRman Reciever and I use it at home in my personal custom music system. This thing rocks! Worth every penny! - June 11, 2001 by Chon Wayne
