Hey everyone just finally finished my little project. Its called AtomIR. What it allows you to do is use a remote to launch applications on your PC and/or control PIC pins.
The cool thing is you can create your own windows software for this. I have created a simple manual which shows you everything you need to get started.
I have developed my own software for it also. So if you don’t want to you can just use mines. My software allows you to set what application and/or PIC pin to control and what state to set the pin. Its really easy to use.
