- HAL2000 IR Control

Just bought HAL2000 and need to know why on earth I have to buy an Ocelot or
a homeseer etc to be able to learn and control IR devices!
When HAL is running on a PC in the first place, it seems bizarre that they
don't seem to provide an interface for e.g. a USB IR device like the Media
Centre 2005 IR unit which has IR in and out.
Has anyone any ideas of how I can use HAL for IR control WITHOUT buying
another expensive piece of h/ware?
Re: HAL2000 IR Control
You could use a product like ours (www.charmedquark.com). It is a full
featured automation package, and you can use inexpensive devices like the
USB-UIRT for blasting and receiving, or the IRMan if you just want
receiving. It might be more than you really need, since it is a full
featured system, but if you start with something that can do more than you
need, you won't have to throw away a smaller solution and start over as your
