Hi there,

I am trying to generate some code that would use the IR port on my PDA(Dell Axim x51,running on windows mobile 5.0.)
to act as a tv remote. Besides the GUI which I have created on VB I have not been able to progress at all.

At the moment I will like some simple function such as changing channels and turning the TV on and off. preferably on Visual Basic or C?
I am already aware that my PDA infra-red will only work over a short distance compared to the consumer TV remote controls
Any Ideas?

Please help me to try and complete this project I am a beginner on programming. Where do I start?
