This is a common misconception. The IR port built into many laptops
uses the IRda protocol, which has a different IR LED frequency from

The hardware is physically incapable of generating a signal
compatible with that sent by most remote controls. It's designed for
sending data over short distances (about 3 feet), such as PDA->Laptop
