Is there universal remotes, which you can teach? For example, you have an old remote, which is works badly, you get new universal one, and simply positioning them in front of each other, press the button on the old one, and the new one store the signal. So you can use new instead?!
I know it is possible to do with pocket pc, I had earlier program called noviiremote, where you can program buttons and use your pda as a remote. but, no longer have pda with a IR port
