    using Palm infrared port as remote

    Hello

    I recently obtained for free an old Palm IIIc device, and it has an
    infrared port (no bluetooth, no wifi, no expansion slots, Palm OS
    4.0). Are there programs available to turn the device into some
    universal remote and manage to control the Squeezebox ? I did google a
    bit but found nothing except Sailing Clicker, which doesn't work with
    infrared ports.

    Thanks for infos

    There was a program, shareware IIRC... Check out http://www.palmgear.com.
    First thing to consider though is that the IR transmitter in those devices
    is very weak, it's only intended for swapping business cards or
    synchronizing to a laptop.

    I've had good luck with NoviiRemote
    (http://www.novii.tv/products/noviir/r-descr/index.html). They claim to
    make use of the Palm's weak IR by using their "own proprietary driver".
    I have no complaints about the range. My only complaint is that their
    current version has a handful of templates (VCR, DVD, TV, etc.) that
    don't quite map onto the SliMP3 remote, but I can live with that for now
    - they say they're working on a more customizable version.
