The receiver circuit diagram for winlirc shows an IR receiver connected to a handshaking pin, not a serial data pin. I think that monitoring the port activity on receive will just show the program reading the status of the DCD pin repeatedly.
You can read the DCD pin yourself without winlirc running.

Winlirc is open source, I thoink you would be better to add some code to winlirc to save the raw data.

Hi all,

i am new to programming in VisualC#.NET.

Is there any (simple) way in which i can access the COM port (read/write to XML device connected to it) using either Wndows Application (prefered) or Console Application!!

The "using System.IO.Ports" is not available in VS.NET 2003. Likewise the 'MSComm' control.

Please help.. thanks
