Control your PC with TV Remote

Now you can control your mouse cursor and windows media player with your TV remote… So when you are watching a movie or listening songs on your PC, you need not to get up from your seat to change the volume or to change the track.. you can simply use your TV remote to do this.

Description:

This project is an implementation of RC5-remote reception on an 8051 microcontroller. The received code is decoded and sent to the PC IR remote software written in Visual Basic. The cursor position is moved according to the keys pressed.

There are two modes of operation one is as mouse control and second is Windows media player control. More information on key control is given in the software’s help section. You might need to download the VB library files to run this software.
