Remote control for PC - each digit 0-9 on remote is programmable. user for example enters 10 on remote & sees cnettv.com Answered


I take it you're looking for instructions for building one? It's probably easier to just use a standard bluetooth keyboard, but  ... you need to decide between radio and IR connection between remote and reciever, you need to decide how you're going to interface to the PC, and you need to come up with software which monitors this new device and responds to it by issuing the appropriate command. None of that individually is very difficult, but putting it all together takes a while.

Websearch should find information on building IR sender/receiver interfaces for PCs, together with some simple applications -- though they've generally focused more on letting the PC control other things than vice versa.
