Hi there! I just wanted to ask if there's anyone in here having experience with the IR Port? I'm having a notebook with a fast IR-Port, and want to create a little tool to capture a signal and send it out again (to "learn" from my TVs remote control). How complicated is this? Are there simple API calls like "RecieveFromIR" and "SendToIR" ?? Or is complicated hardcore assembler neccessary? Thanks a lot!

It depends on the platform you are on, I have an IR port on my old Mac PowerBook, but I assume old PC laptops have them as well. If you are on a Mac, there is some (very little in fact) info on Apple's site, but it seems to be a platform specific API.

No personal experience, but the Windows API provides an interface to work with them. Here's the relevant section on MSDN. Happy hunting.
