Total Remote 2.0 is a completely rewritten version of Total Remote for Windows Mobile Pocket PC. This new version adds CCF support, meaning that users can now use any of the thousands of free presets written for the Philips Pronto based remote controls. It also adds complete Macro editing and customizing capabilities. With the same capabilities as the far more expensive Pronto style remotes, Total Remote paired with a Pocket PC makes a very cost effective complete Universal Remote Control for even the most sophisticated of Home Theater systems.
Designed specifically for Pocket PCs, Total Remote transforms a Pocket PC into a full function remote control. It can send infrared commands to any device that can be controlled via IR - up to 100 feet away. The Total Remote package includes a patented hardware transmitter that gives users up to 3 times greater range than standard remotes. The Total Remote software can support built in Infrared ports (IrDA) at shorter ranges. Total Remote 2.0 is also capable of utilising consumer infrared (CIR) hardware, which results in a much stronger signal and better performance. For customers who have upgraded to Windows Mobile 2003 and lost their built-in remote control program, Total Remote 2.0 allows them to take full advantage of their hardware.
Total Remote ships with preconfigured profiles for TVs, VCRs, and DVD players from most common manufacturers. Users can easily add additional devices by downloading new customized device profiles. With the new CCF compatibility thousands more unique presets are available for free download from sites like remotecentral.com among others. Users can also create their own custom settings or macros. Now in Total Remote 2.0, users have the ability to re-edit and save existing macros instead of recreating them from scratch.
This softwated update is free for current users of Total Remote 1.2, and it's available for download from the Griffin Technology website.
