My favorite use for the IR port on any PDA is syncing. The second is controlling an unsuspecting friend’s TV. Total Remote is packed full of features that let Pocket PC owners take control.
The software comes stocked with a bunch of profiles but also has the ability to learn almost any commercially available remote commands. There are also a number of customizable options, including skins for each remote.
You can purchase from the Griffin Technology site for $29.99. There’s not a trial though, so I’d be a little leary about buying right away. I have requested a review copy, if we get one, we’ll get something up shortly.
