    Its probably a P800/P900/P910 that he has. Thats a smart phone so it has a different type of infra red. I've tried looking for a program to use on my K750i but don't think its possible for non smart phones

    I think there is a range issue regarding infra red's on phones. I think some only have a short range, whilst others (The Pxxx series) have a longer range, as normal Tv remote's do.

    I am also interested in this though, as I believe the S700i has a similar option, and would love to add something cool like this to my phone.

    Thats available for the K750i too. Its bluetooth based and can control pc/media player and projector.

    I think tv remotes use a different technology, they dont use infra red. They use RF which is like a radio signal meaning you dont actually need it pointing at the device, just somewhere near it.
