    One for all you Axim/PDA-ir/TV Remote guys :)

    Laser CF IR extender arrived today - inserted, fired up TV Remote (version 5.0) & cannot select External IR CF transmitter :(

    It's still greyed out/unselectable.

    Either a dead CF card (unlikely) or something very simple I've overlooked (likely).

    Just in the door & thought I'd ask the question - save me the hassle of researching this - DVD due to air shortly. Mrs. Kramer wants to see a movie & not watch me surf the net all night :eek:

    Messiah? You the Axim/PDA-ir man ;)

    Kramer,

    Version 5.0 of TVRemote?? You sure. Don't know the differences but the current version is 5.4. The upgrade is free on PDAWIN.com. Give that a try.

    Or alternatively have you entered the code to change TVRemote from an un-registered to a registered version of the software. Maybe the external device is not allowd in the un-registered version.

    Thanks for the reply mrv :)

    Yep, a registered version of version 5.0. Off to the web site now for version 5.4 :)

    Hope that sorts it out...

    Oh God, she's back - back to the movie we must go.....

    :smoke:

    5.4 should sort it. Versions prior to that did not offer support for Axim so guess that must be why. The external IR option is not even greyed out if there is no IR extender inserted so must be software version.

    Have pm'd you
