Tira is an infrared transmitter for a PC.

Sales pitch

In many situations, it is necessary to be able to transmit IR signals from a PC. For example, if you use a PC as a TIVO or ReplayTV device, it would be great if a PC could automatically switch channels on a cable box. Also, in many home automation applications a PC needs to control various equipments around the house. Most of the equipment can be controlled by IR signals. That's why we decided to develop Tira, the Transmitting InfraRed Adapter. It works with a popular program Girder and allows to capture IR codes right from the original remote and reproduce them later. Of course, it allows you to control applications running on a PC, as Ira-2 does.[1]
