In many situations, it is necessary to be able to transmit IR signals from a PC.
For example, if you use a PC as a TIVO or ReplayTV device, it would be great if a PC could
automatically switch channels on a cable box. Also, in many home automation applications
a PC needs to control various equipments around the house. Most of the equipment can be controlled
by IR signals. That's why we decided to develop Tira, the Transmitting InfraRed Adapter.
It works with a popular program Girder and allows to capture IR
codes right from the original remote and reproduce them later. Of course, it allows you to control
applications running on a PC, as Ira-2 does.

can be used as a remote control extender. If you connect another

the second device can be used as an IR input, and all
IR codes received by the second device will be immediately reproduced by the main
This way not only you can control your PC from two rooms, but also control all other
equipment from two rooms. read more...
Tira is designed to work with most remote controls.
In fact, we believe it will work with ALL remote controls
using modulation frequency in the range of 32kHz to 42kHz. Is it good or bad? Well, at this time we know of only two
companies that use frequency out of the range. Those are "Bang & Olufsen" and "Vidikron". All
other brands must work.
