Chapter 6. Control Your Home Theater > The IR Signal Processor

6.3. The IR Signal Processor

Now that you've built the UIRT2, you need to teach your PC how to control it. There's no better way to do this than with the free Girder program. Girder can respond to any input, not just infrared signals, and translate that input into action. For this project you'll focus on receiving infrared signals from a single remote and retransmitting sequences of infrared signals to control multiple devices.

6.3.1. 1. Obtain and install Girder

Girder is a free download from http://www.girder.nl. I recommend downloading the installer version rather than the zip file version. Installing it is as simple as clicking Next a bunch of times and accepting a license agreement along the way.
