I think it is REALLY cool!

I hope you can use the Palm emulator on the N900 with this IRDA port.
That way a lot more Palm applications should be able to run on the N900.

I have two legacy Palm IRDA apps that I would LOVE to be able to run on a N900. (1 to interface with a Casio camera Watch, and a second one to interface with a Seiko Ink-link Pen)

I'm not saying it is particularly usefull, but it is very cool in my opinion if this would work!

Any chance of getting TV-B-Gone functionality into this application? Just for fun and nerd factor increase.

I'd say it's next to impossible to record ir transmission from that thing. It just sends many many different shutdown commands. (Impossibe to record with lirc, except to raw code whitch is not supported sending type.)

What I'd do, is to scan through existing known commands and parse power button commands from there. Pack them up and send all of them.

And if someone is interested about day worth of hard work, I'd recommend looking lirc backend code for a sec and writing desktop widget with one button. Progress indicator would also be nice.

source code of tvbgone, includes the shutdown codes

Files in IRcaptured.zip make no sense to me.
I think codes from WORLDcodes.c could be transformed into raw_code formatting which should be supported by lirc.

Currently raw codes are not supported but I don't know why. I'll ask my coworkers about this tomorrow.

irreco-backend-internal-lirc doesn't support raw_code configs.

some clarifications for a noob please:
the IR sender (it can only send the signal right? not receive) of the N900 has the only purpose to control TVs? (can't come on other widespread/common IR receiver objects)
and in a difficult way? (create the right layout (if possible), UI needs work, IR port on a side, no portrait..)

beginning to understand why I lived all these years not caring for a IR port on any device...

(though, worth adding that Irreco is a nice app; everybody who worked on that has all my respect for adding functionalities to this and other devices! )

TV-b-gone would work as well as any other IR remote would work (I think I did the first proof of concept on a Palm 3 - they said it couldn't be done since it was IrDA, but if you can set the right baud rate, and send a string of "U" (0x55), you get a carrier.

IrDA send tends to be weak as far as brightness goes.

For those of you wondering about the strength of the ir, it seems that this could be from a reliable source, or what do you say?:

It seems to work fine from 5 or 6 meters. Longer distances might work, haven't tested (yet). One remote has only one page for buttons but you can create multiple remotes for same device and you can switch easily between them. So that's kind of a hack to achieve it.
source the youtube tutorial video (check comments by the uploader IreccoTeam):
