    Remote Control...

    Advertisement



    I'm throwing this out there... How about a program on you blackberry that acts as a remote control... I am ignorant on the engineering aspect and if this is even possible, but in my world, that would be a "must have" program. Any takers? Maybe I should have taken my college roomates advice and been an EE major instead of Marketing. Haha

    Re: Remote Control...

    Great idea...but not possible with your BB! Since your television and like devices receive signals via IR (BB doesn't have an IR port) it's just not going to happen...BT won't work either! Not to say that maybe one day your TV and such will be built to utilize BT for remote control.

    But again...it's a great idea.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~i use to own a sony clie pda back in the day with the remote capability. Used to be fun going into sports bars or restaurants and changing the channels on them in the middle of the big game. I know I know I'm cruel but admit its funny

    The first company to include a tv remote with a phone would revolutionize the industry and put iPhone in serious trouble. There was a program for my ol Nokia S60 phone but it never worked.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ I'm still using my old handspring visor with the remote springboard module. It works great learns everything does macros. Its age is catching up to the battery and is might not be worth changing.

    How about using Shapeservices RDM+ remote desktop software to control your music player software on your computer from across the room. Fun trick at a party and the closest thing we have to slingbox.

    Maybe try out this software:

    Too bad they don't have one for Linux, I would really like that.

    Remote control for what? I know you can't control a TV, but here is something worth keeping an eye on:

    Re: Remote Control...

    That seems very interesting. I like the concept, 1 device to control everything. It was also give me much excuses when my gf asks "why are you always on your phone." With these options, the excuses are endless.
