Hack the Apple iPOD - iTunes
We have the same problem every day. Having in my house DVD player, TV, XBOX, etc etc.. Al these are working with remotes.
What do you think if you can use your iPOD mp3 player to replace all these remotes?
We will take an iPod mp3 player - Apple 2 GB iPod Nano White ( you can use any type of iPOD ) and turn it into a universal infrared (IR) remote control.
This tool can be used to control your home electronic equipment, or just about anything that uses a remote control.
To do this, we need to record the sounds that an infrared remote makes on a PC and then put them on an iPod mp3 player as songs. We wil add a special sound-to- IR converter then turns those sounds back to IR and allows you to use your iPod as a remote control. This will rowk from up to 100 feet away. All-in-one unit, and you’ll never use multiple remotes again.
Here is what we need for this change:
An iPod (doesn’t matter which one) but we recommend The Apple 2 GB iPod Nano White
A PC and sound recording software
A Pocket PC (any Pocket PC 2002/2003 should work) but we reccomend The HP iPAQ HX4705 Pocket PC
Griffin’s Total Remote software and IR device
