Re: TIRA is junk - AVOID IT!

Sorry to ask so many questions, I'm designing equipment for the company I
work for www.digitalglu.com (shameless plug) and we're working on home
control. We already have whole house audio, UPnP, Squeezebox (the squeezebox
has a very nice way to send commands to a pc via IR)
What are the cost restrictions on this project?
