Use Your Treo as a Universal Remote Control

You probably never thought about using your Treo as a universal remote control for media equipment such as your TV, DVD player, cable box, and so forth. It turns out that the infrared port on your device is more than capable of beaming remote control commands to such devices. If you'd like to use your Treo to forgo the many remote controls that crowd the average “media room” these days, you'll want to check out NoviiRemote Deluxe by NoviiMedia.

Note

NoviiMedia also has a product called NoviiRemote Blaster that includes a high-powered infrared transmitter on an SD card with the NoviiRemote software built in. Unfortunately, as of this writing, NoviiRemote Blaster is not yet available for Treo devices. A version for the Treo is expected at some point and will help solve the problem of relatively weakly powered infrared ports on Treo devices.
