spugh Posted March 30, 2010 Share Posted March 30, 2010 I have a really cool little gadget for sale. I bought this before I got too far down the road with C4. Essentially it's a docking station for an iPhone or iPod Touch that has a wifi radio and IR emitters around the base. You install a free app from the app store, set up the base station to connect to your wireless network, and use the app to send commands over wifi to the base station which translates them into IR. I bet one of you ingenuitive guys on here could even write something to turn this into an IP to IR bridge for C4. I bought it from someone who had it in a display shelf at their store, but I never really used it, so it's like new in the box. They are selling for $188 online, but I'm asking $150. let me know if you have any questions.Thanks,SteveDescription below:TURN YOUR IPHONE OR IPOD TOUCH INTO A UNIVERSAL REMOTE CONTROL!RedEye is your personal remote control.With the RedEye system you can use your iPhone or iPod touch to control your TV, stereo, cable box, DVD player, and many other devices that receive standard (infrared) signals.
