So many simple solutions to any given problem, each with it's good and bad points, and users 'free' to choose any or develop their own. This is fun.
@stunix*com: I used to use VNC all the time and still do sometimes. The 2 problems I had were it slowing things way down on old computers and having to reconnect each time I loose the wireless signal on my laptop.
I did just that with an Apple IIC in about 1991 or so. sensor from a vcr, built a simple circuit to convert the cmos signal level to ttl that went in one of the single bit inputs of the game controler. Add a universal remote and a driver I wrote in assebly language and I now had an infared keyboard. I have an external RF remote from one of my old C-Band satalites (worked in any room) that I want to try that with. I'll have to take a look at lirc.

Mikshaw, a free serial port and about 5 dollars worth of scrounged parts (Look for old vcrs and stbs) is all you need to make one lirc compatible (Irda is not lirc compatible)
