IR Dongle??
« on: September 09, 2007, 09:02:28 pm »
I'm starting to gather parts for a hybrid core.  I would like to know what I need to be able to transmit IR commands to my TV etc. Is it some kind of USB IR dongle? Or do I have to get one of those GC100's?

thanks

Jon

The USBUIRT is fully supported and works very well. I have three I'm using.
