CONCLUSIONS & AFTERTHOUGHTS


For those looking for an inexpensive solution, you cannot get much better than the Creative Infra (PC-DVD) Remote Control. The remote worked great right out of the box without much tinkering. For those who want more out of it, programmable functions abound in the Remote Selector application. Plus, the ability to expand the software bundle via other open source applications means that you can customize the remote, and make it do what you want it to do.


The distance was excellent, although as always, IR is limited by line of sight. The ability to use keyboard emulation and mouse functions is also a great addition, however a little more speed is needed for the mouse movement.


All in all, a fantastic remote for us lazy bastids who don't like getting off the couch. For the price, you simply cannot go wrong. The cons listed are minimal and do not hinder performance.


Pros:


Inexpensive
Small
Supports many applications and is programmable
Good distance (remote to receiver)
Open source software can be used in addition to the bundled software package for added functionality


Cons:


Serial instead of USB
Large receiver which is strictly for this remote
Mouse movement slow
Bundled software somewhat limited
