    Im on an old G3 Pismo and i've always been curious to know if there was anything I can do with the infrared port like control a TV or something. Anyone know of any programs or apps like this? Or anything in general??? Im bored as fuck!

    no no no, I have an infrared port that is used for networking and such. the new MBP's have a port as well but it is only to receive from the apple remote.
