This is the smallest and most efficient infrared remote control software. I use it with a script to control Windows and any application I want. All you need to do is to find the right remote control configuration file (http://lirc.sourceforge.net/remotes/), or create one with IRRecord.exe.

If you are using an universal remote control, you can download the Phillips RC5 configuration file (http://lirc.sourceforge.net/remotes/philips/RC-5) and enter the Phillips TV code for your remote.
