Default Infrared control of external devices

My Win 2K laptop has an IRDA port (SMC IRCC - Fast InfraRed Port) and I am looking for some software that will enable me to control external devices - eg. TV, stereo etc - or at least allow me to send codes via the IR port.

The only thing I have found that comes close is WinLIRC, but that is only for IR transmitter/receivers on the serial port.

Can anyone help?

you should be able to go to your local circuit city or best buy and buy a remote control for your computer. what you want to do is common.
