WinLIRC client

GSDR can be controlled with infra-red remote controller. First go to WinLIRC home page, download and install latest package. Select your remote controller and edit configuration file (usually config.cfg) file from WinLIRC folder. If your remote controller is not supported use IRRecord.exe for learning codes (more info on usage page).
Open Setup->General->Options set Server address (127.0.0.1 for local host) and enable WinLIRC client. By default port is 8765 and must be open in Firewall settings if WinLIRC server is not located on local PC where GSDR runs.
