In this video a demonstrate how to setup EventGhost from scratch.
I use WinLIRC to process the signal from my IR receiver connected to the Serial Port.
Eventghost is an open source automation software for Windows, that can be extended through plugins. It can use different input devices like infrared or wireless remote controls to trigger macros, that on their part control a computer and its attached hardware. So it can be used to control a HTPC/Media-PC with a normal consumer remote. But its possible uses go much beyond this.
EventGhost monitors everything that happens in your computer. Opening applications, changing focus from one app to another, pressing keys, pressing remote buttons, and so on and so forth. All this constitutes events and EventGhost can associate actions to execute to each and every event happening in your machine.
It's a really powerful tool and this tutorial will barely scratch the surface of what it's capable of. Those interested in more information would do well by heading to its homepage.
