Hello guys!

I wonder if anyone could help me with a little bit tricky problem.
I was thinking of using a remote control (you know, those for tvs, stereos etc) to controll winamp on my computer. But the problem (or one of them) is that I don't have a ir port on my comp. Therefore I was thinking of using my PPC's (an iPaq 3130) IR port. So I wrote a program to communicate with ppc and computer through a serial cable. No problems, It is working :)
But I don't want to push a button on the iPaq all the time, I want to use the remote controll.. Anyone who knows how to capture what the remote controll is sending so I know which button that has been pressed on the rc?

Anyone who knows? I know that PocketC has support for infrared communication but how?

Thanks in advance!

No, but it would be really really nice of you to send the code to I'm trying to use my 620lx to control the TV, I thought your code might help.
