I have also experienced the above problem. The IR program does not initialise the IR hardware on its own and requires a manual activation. This causes the 555 IR error, and worse still prevents the phone from being turned off. Any ideas?
I have a real problem with this application, the installation was fine but when I try to do some work on it, it doesn't work with me, I tried it with more than one brand but nothing happens even if the Infrared is turned off..
