Re: ppc as a remote control?

To my understanding... even if you get the software to do it, the moguls ir port is not nearly as strong to make use of it as a remote. The range is something like 3 feet. Basically, it is going to be easier to reach your hand out and press the button on your tv.

Re: ppc as a remote control?

I use Novii Remote Deluxe on my 6700. Works great, and I'm getting 10-15 feet of range on Tivo, Sony TV, Magnovox TV, and Panasonic TV.

FWIW, the Vito gave me about 2 feet of range and the Novii basic barely worked at all.

Also, here's a tip: Make sure the send/receive IR is switched on. (I know, seems obvious, but I forgot and spent hours trying to figure it out.) If the remote doesn't work at first, try toggling the IR on and off. Sometimes, that does the trick for me.
