program ir receiver
I am thinking to buy an IR receiver for my HTPC.
I wonder if I can make a software for my IR Receiver myself.
How does ir receiver work on windows ?
I mean, if I install IR receiver driver and press a key on my remote controller, what happen? can I get pressed button in c# using hook? if I can catch pressed button, it would be fun to play with :)
A good place to start would be WinLIRC. I personally don't have any experience with IR remotes, but I suspect that any remote you use will be behind an abstraction layer. Essentially, the key presses on the remote are indistinguishable from ordinary keyboard key presses.
