This is really fantastic. Clever yet fairly straightforward.

I've neen looking for a way to use the Universal Remote with Front Row on a non-iMac. Front Row is easy, the Remote less so. I guess any receiver will do if I use my iPod though.

Pretty neat, I bet the same thing can be done with a PC/PPC or Laptop.

Yep. As long as it has a headphone jack and can play mp3s, it will do fine.

Doesn't have to be in MP3 format. It can work in pretty much any sound format.

Yeah, I was being lazy with my last post. Figure most people here would realise that I was generalising with the term 'mp3'. If its good enough, you could probably use an old walkman. Not practical though.....

Have there been any additional mods similar to this? I want to do it but dont have an infrared port or a Poket pc to do it with. I do how ever have a Wallstreet laptop with an Ir port but I dont know if i can make this work. Any ideas?
