Using an IR remote with your PS3: Ugly but nifty

PS3-IR

AV centric folks have a very understandable complaint about the PS3: why no IR receiver? Well, if you’re one that chooses to ignore Sony‘s Bluetooth remote, and you’re obstinate about using that costly IR remote, then you’re probably going to want to read this post.

The folks at Remote Central has a workaround that will allow you to add infrared functionality to your big black console. You’re going to need a PSX/PS2 Controller-to-USB adapter as well as an original Sony DVD remote for the PS2 (model SCPH-10172) with external IR receiver (model SCPH-10160).

It’s going to be pretty ugly, but if you can live with that, and if you don’t want to spend for the Bluetooth remote, then the resulting USB to adapter to IR receiver to IR remote workaround might just be for you.
