Have been searching for ages with no joy😔, does anyone know of any software that can use my laptops IR receiver and display the results as an oscilloscope.

Many thanks in advance,

Dopey I am totally with you!!

I have been looking for a way to interface my laptop's IR reciever. HOWEVER there is a catch. Newer models do not allow you to do that, these IR are also known as CIR! or Consumer Infrared. Used mainly for Micro$hit OEM products like Medea Center and stuff. Basically it will be illegal for you to use for anything else.

But the older models might have a way to interface. Please remember if you ask a question dont be lazy, give me each and evrything about your laptop,

what does the IRr look like?
Is there a remote?
Which company/model laptop?
What OS?
What did you find online till now???

EVERYTHING!! If this comes through it will be an awesome project. I tried to reverse engineer the IR port but found just 2 files related to it. Ill post them later since they are on my laptop.
