Now that's a neat gizmo.

Good to see an IR product like this for the Treo.
Check out IR Monitor at as well for a free IR monitoring app.

IR Monitor will not work with Treos or OMAP-based devices. Quoting:

This IR Monitor is using Raw IR mode of PalmOS. Raw IR mode cannot be used on OMAP-based (Tungsten|T, Tungsten|T2, Tungsten|E, Zire21, Treo600, and Zire71) products due to an OMAP processor limitation. The OMAP's UART3 automatically frames all data according to the IrDA specification. There is no way to change this setting in the processor and use raw IR in the OMAP UART. Therefore, IRMonitor cannot be used by the model of OMAP.

That hurts.
Sorry Treo owners.

This is a dumb, silly novelty.

I agree. I use tons of apps on my Treo (e.r. real player, quicken, splashphoto, ereader, smartlist), but couldn't imagine taking it this far.

I agree that the NoviiBlaster itself is overkill, but I actually use the NoviiRemote program daily. I can control practically every IR media device in my house and at work.

this is a "thinking outside the box" product.

i just hope they create drivers for other devices especially older palm handhelds and the ones with larger screens.

it would be great to use a discarded haldheld as a universal remote around the house.

thinking outside the box! that's why love palm users and developers!

At first I thought using a discarded palm as a remote might be a good idea, but then when remotes get lost or layed on a table they would always be out of power.

For $12 you can get a universal remote that runs on batteries that don't need to be replaced for years and have few breakable parts. (So when the cat knocks it off the table....)

I had NoviiRemote Deluxe on my Tungsten E and enjoyed it greatly, but it's impossible to use on my Treo 650 because of the range. I am excited to not have to creep up to the TV set when I am out and about.
