Thread: Usb-uirt

  1. Question Usb-uirt

    A USB-UIRT question.

    I am looking for software to use with my USB-UIRT so I can transfer the commands in my I-Sobot remote to my PC and later transfer the command(s) to my I-Sobot from my PC.
    The USB-UIRT has a Help program that allows only 1 command to be uploaded to the PC and then DL to the robot. I have looked at Girder but this app. seems to be geared to AV & Audio remotes.
    Perhaps I missed something?
    Sugestions anyone?

    Download "Robodance" software. It will control your I-sobot from your pC using your USB-uirt.

    What is a "USB-UIRT"?

    Do you mean UART?

    Is this a language thing?

    "Universal Infra Red Transmitter". I know. Blah. I agree.

    PCMCIA - People Can't Memorize Crummy Industry Acronyms. Seriously, though, it has some acceptance: http://www.usbuirt.com/

    Although the UIRT dates back a fair while before USB, iirc.

    Hey Guys,

    If I remember correctly there are only a few USB Uirts that work with robodance. Actually I think the lego mindstorms serial tower works, and can be found on ebay sometimes.

    I was goofing around with this a while ago, but I couldn't find the drivers for the transmitter!

    Keep us posted.

    This is the one I bought. It works perfectly.

    I was just using it with my Isobot and Robodance a second ago.

    FYI: Even though the website doesn't list Vista as supported, I haven't encountered any difficulties using the USB-Uirt with Vista. I haven't tried any other IR programs than Robodance, however, so I can't vouch for any other programs working with Vista and USBUIrt.
