    • Gets much more done than WinLIRC, although lacking as much compatibility with IR modules. Much easier to use, for even semi-complex tasks. It can run your entire house, and is open source. Excellent support on it's forums. Absolutely worth a good hard look. Guest • May 2017 Disagree   Agree

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.
