2oh1 Posted November 19, 2014 Report Share Posted November 19, 2014 I stream all kinds of stuff from the Mac at my desk to the stereo in front of my couch on the opposite side of the room. I'm using Flirc to control the Mac with a universal remote. It works great except for one problem: people always point the remote at the stereo instead of pointing it back toward the Mac on the other side of the room, which means the commands often fail because the remote isn't pointed at Flirc. My goal is to see if it's possible to move Flirc - to somehow set it by the stereo and connect it wirelessly to my Mac on the other side of the room. My wireless router sits behind the stereo, and it has a USB port, but it's an Apple Airport Extreme router, and for whatever reason, Airport Extreme doesn't allow its USB port to be used for much other than connecting a USB hard drive. In other words, the router won't stream a USB keyboard, which means it won't work with Flirc. Do other routers allow the USB port to be used for USB keyboards, and would that work with a Mac? Or, is there another way to accomplish this? People always point the remote at the TV and stereo, so I want to move Flirc to the TV and stereo... the question is, how?
