Vectir AV manager released! Remotely control your favorite MP3 player
September 19, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology NewsVectir (www.vectir.com) is an audio visual (AV) management application that lets you remotely control popular media or MP3 players such as Winamp, iTunes and Windows Media Player. It can also control other features of your operating system such as moving the mouse pointer, adjusting the master sound volume and shutting down your computer.
It works with USB infrared receiver devices such as the USBUIRT (www.usbuirt.com) and Tira2(www.home-electro.com). These devices pickup signals from most infrared (IR) remote controls and send them to your computer. You can use your existing remote controls with these devices. There is no need to purchase any new remote controls.
For example, you may setup the play button on your remote control to send a play command to Winamp. Every time Vectir detects that you have pressed the play button on your remote control, it will send a play command to Winamp.
Vectir also supports the infrared (IR) capture feature of the USB-UIRT and Tira devices. This feature lets you capture enough information about an IR signal to be able to re-send it. After Vecitr has "captured" an IR signal, it can then be re-sent. This means that you can use your PC as an IR remote control and send commands to your TV, DVD player etc.
Vectir is available free of charge from www.vectir.com. You may setup and test commands without any compatible hardware being connected. This means you can download and test vectir before ordering your IR hardware.
