I recently got a new computer with Vista and Girder stopped working. I downloaded Girder5 Beta, supposedly "Vista-ble", but it is a nightmare for a non-geek. Setting up Girder3 was challenging enough. I don't want to deal with the lousy instructions for the beta or Girder4. Does anyone have suggestions for a SIMPLE program to use with my USB UIRT to control my television from my computer? I am a quadriplegic and can't use a standard remote but can use a mouse. I have X-10 for controlling lights etc. from my computer and I have no need for cameras, scheduled automation, controlling computer programs, burglar alarms or spying on the neighbors. All I need is to turn the TV on and change channels using ny mouse. (I don't want to use my computer as a TV though. Nothing that riveting on that I don't want to work on my computer while watching TV.) Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated!
