Is it possible to make a script that can control your tv from the computer?

Is it even possible to do it at all with software and stuff?

Thanks.

There are IR Blaster devices that connect to your serial port and can be programmed to operate various audio/video components. Google 'em up. :o

So I'd need to buy hardware and make a code? Ok, well I don't really want to pay money to do it, but thanks anyway.

Or WinLIRC. There's also an ActiveX module for it.

Sidenote: I find it funny that they named it WinLIRC if the "L" in LIRC is Linux.... Windows Linux Infrared Remote Control.... hmmm fun. :o
