Can I use my IRDA port on my computer for a TV-B-Gone like divice? Answered

I have an IRDA port (the infrared serial port) on my laptop and I was wondering if there was a program that sends out IR signals to turn off TVs just like the TV-B-Gone.

If not, is there a program that can record IR signals from this IRDA port and play them back later? This way I can just record the TV-B-Gone's signals and play them back later.

Well if thats the case, why don't I just power my TV-B-Gone with the 5v USB power?
