I have a need to create a networked IR extender system. I would like to have this based on the USB Infrared Tor from Dangerous Prototypes ([url removed, login to view]) with any code written in C or Python under LINUX. Ultimately I would like to have multiple IR Toys plugged into multiple LINUX machines. There may be more than one Toy on each machine. I would like to be able to configure the software so that IR signals received in one location are transmitted out one set of transmitters, whereas IR signals received elsewhere may be retransmitted by a different set of transmitters (possibly with some overlap). I would also like to be able to save the codes with some type of watermark, and preferably inject others to be transmitted under software control. I am thinking that this needs to be client-server. I do not know if there is any overlap between this project and the LIRC project, but using code from LIRC may be permitted if there is a need. The need for this project is that I have a house with lots of different remotes, and hidden equipment. I would like to be able to control that equipment from anywhere
