URGENT - Powerpoint / projector remote

  SheilaB 18:36 14 Apr 2004

NEED TO KNOW BY 6am GMT tomorrow - I have a new Optoma 725 projector - just got told the presentations I'm doing all day tomorrow need to be driven by the remote control. I've got it working to set up the ptojector but can't get it to trigger the PPT presentation slides, which is what I really need, and there is nothing in the manual - any ideas????

Have you got the projector connected to the laptop via USB or PS/2 port?

You may need to install software/drivers to get it to see the remote as a mouse.

If there is no connection the remote will never talk to the PC!!

sheila I cant help much but as you are in a panic you may miss the obvious. Have you looked at the powerpoint help menu for assistance. It may point you in the right direction.

Probably barking up the wrong tree (again).

Read the spec and it refers to an IR remote ... your PC does have IR support, doesn't it?
