Windows Infrared Remote Control Program – Download Free WinLIRC

WinLIRC is the Windows equivalent of LIRC, the Linux Infrared Remote Control program. WinLIRC allows user to transmit and receive standard infrared remote control signals. This allows user to control computer using almost any standard infrared remote control. It also allows the computer to control other equipment which uses these signals (stereo equipment).

WinLIRC is an application that runs seperately from MediaPortal and listens to an IR detector on the serial port. When it receives a recognized signal it sends out a socket packet to all listening applications. The WinLIRC Plugin listens to these packets and converts them into something that MediaPortal understands.

MediaPortal supports receiving remote commands from the WinLIRC server through the use of the WinLIRC Plugin. WinLIRC requires a very simple IR detector that allows you to decode infra-red signals of many  commonly used remote controls. There exists a full list of supported remotes.
