craigrs84 Posted July 28, 2014 Report Share Posted July 28, 2014 I have a Windows 8 PC sitting directly beside my Samsung TV. What I'm hoping to do is a buy FLIRC and combine it with a cheap universal remote control. I'd prefer to use the universal remote control alone to control my TV, my blu ray player, and my HTPC all without interfering with each other. What I mean by interfering is that if I'm using the remote to control my HTPC and I press a button on the remote intended for FLIRC, then in most cases I probably wouldn't want the TV's IR receiver to also pick up that button press and react to it because it may cause weirdness. I am considering using FLIRC with this remote control: http://www.amazon.com/RCA-RCRN08GR-Device-Universal-Backlit/dp/B003EYV21K/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1406518466&sr=8-1&keywords=rca+8+universal+remote Are there any other options besides FLIRC that would work well for me? From what I've read the Windows Media Center remotes kind of stink and there aren't many Windows MCE remotes that are also universal remotes. Another option I've read about is the Harmony remote series, but I'm not sure I want to spend that much money on one and I've head of possible issues with delay/slowness with harmony remotes. Thanks for your help. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
