I had THE coolest idea a while ago. Why don't I take my old 300MHz laptop and jigger it up so the IR transmitter on it can communicate with all my A/V equipment? All I'd have to do is read the digital codes from each button of each remote, and then program the computer to broadcast those same codes! Brilliant! ...how do I interface with a Fast Infrared port? Specifically, how do I get it to display all the data it collects, regardless of whether "proper" communication protocols are being followed?
