Compatible Products & Services / Re: IR Help *please* Which IR transceiver to get? Supported IR Hardware?« on: April 08, 2008, 04:02:47 am »
There are two choices that work exceptionally well:
(1) the USB UIRT http://www.usbuirt.com/ and
(2) the GC-100 http://www.globalcache.com/products/gc-index.html
the GC-100 is much more expensive, but you gain two remote RS-232 ports, and relay ports as well to control other home automation devices!
both of these devices work out of the box with LinuxMCE, and both support IR learning, which is much needed for doing full A/V control.
I do not recommend using anything else.
Thank you for the reply. I will get the UIRT with the extra IR for $5.00 more. I hope I am not wasting money unnecessarily. I do appreciate your input.
