Watch out because the author of this program can switch off your computer any time !!

I really do not often write reviews for programs I have not tried but with the Publishers description I see no reason why I would want this program from their information.
As I look a little closer to the information supplied I again see no reason as to why I would want this program.
Sorry guys, make your descriptions useful as well as the program a little more specific as I do not need or want something that takes control and is behind the scenes unless I have full confidence in it/useful.
No interest/confidence out of this guy to even want to give it a whirl!

As for the above statement from SandraDuboix I think she needs to expand on that hypothesis or it means nothing!

SandraDuboix we are all waiting!!!

If Girder doesn't work for you, and you have a SnapStream Firefly remote, I recommend LM Remote Keymap. All you need are the standalone firefly drivers, plus this app:

No, I don't work for them. I have BeyondTV and didn't see any reason I should load the entire media application just to get my remote working. It also works with plenty of other apps and is configurable.

As a disabled user whose condition has deteriorated steadily over the last few years making life as easy as possible has been my number one objective for quite a while now. Girder is helping me achieve this goal! I can no longer go without this application, highly recommended!

I couldn't get this POS software to work. Despite following every single direction & instruction listed, my Firefly remote wouldn't detect it, despite the fact I loaded the correct plugin.

$99 for this headache. No thanks!

This program is awesome. I started using this for my home and am now using it at the school where I am the official computer wiz. I've automated projector, VCR/DVD and amplifier control using Girder. The teachers no longer need 4 remotes, Girder takes care of it all.

Girder 4 is a great product I was able to setup my home theatre within a day. I have Girder controlling WinDVD through the USB-UIRT and an universal remote. The manual included is very comprehensive and the new interface makes setting things up so much easier. Support by the company is one of a kind. I would definately not go back to the older version, the new version beats it by far.

too user-unfriendly to pay for it... Just use the old free version.

The last (3.29b) old freeware version of girder is not on the web anywhere to be found!

Girder is high configurable and there are many many plugins available. But it is very hard for me to configure it properly, because there are so many options and settings. It runs very stable and make no problems at all.

At the moment I prefer EventGhost. It is very stable too, although it is an early development status. If girder would allow a more simply configuration I would give 5.
