    I tried the OmniRemote program (pacificneotek.com) on my T a couple of years ago. It did work but the IR transmission was too weak and directional to be of much use. If I'm going to have to sit that close to the target device I may just as well push the buttons myself! Also, the T screen's a bit too small to handle sufficient buttons.

    I really wouldn't waste the time - just get a decent programmable remote.
