Infra-Red Direct Control

INFRA-RED Direct Control for DOS (IRDC) is a full-screen character-based application with a "point & click" user-friendly interface. IRDC communicates with upgradeable ONE FOR ALL© remote controls manufactured by Universal Electronics that are serially interfaced to a PC. The RADIO SHACK 15-1919 is also supported. A special serial cable is required to attach the remote control to the PC; it connects to an RS-232 serial port on the PC and to a 3 pin port within the remote control itself (inside the battery compartment). A Windows version, IRDCw (INFRA-RED Direct Control for WINDOWS) is also available.
