Do any of you know of any remote control software that can be downloaded to a laptop to allow it to function as a remote? I'm just wondering really... After reading this thread here, I'm toying with the idea of applying the hack to my NS700 but I'm reluctant to purchase a learning remote specifically for that purpose, and resent having to pay £40 to "hire" a one off remote if I can help it. I was wondering if it would be possible to utilise the IR port on my laptop to control devices (and programme "special" codes) with the aid of some software? Does such a thing exist?! K.
