Well, I've posted my first cut and a DOS keyboard driver for the IR Keyboard and driver.
The driver is a TSR that monitors the serial port, translates the incoming data, and stores it in the BIOS keyboard buffer. Because of the technique used, not all programs will see the input (for example MS-DOS edit does not see the input until you trigger an interrupt via the PS/2 keyboard). Programs that exhibit good behavior and use the BIOS to interface with keyboard should work just fine. The DOS MP3 player listed in another thread works fine.
* No warranty. It's free and it works for me.
* The driver only works for DOS and can be used in conjunction with your PS/2 keyboard.
* I've not tested what happens if you load Windows while the driver is present.
* A tool to modify the keymap used by the driver.
* A Linux version of the driver.
* The driver can be loaded into upper memory via loadhigh
* Keyboard has no ALT key. I've currently mapped this to Favorites, but because of limitations, you must press and release the key for each ALT combination desired.
* Menu = Esc
* Guide - Mute = F1 - F12
* Clear = Delete
* Fwd = End
* Back = Home
* The rest of the keys are pretty standard and not all dark grey keys are mapped.
* The "mouse" is mapped to the arrow keys
* 0 - 9 = Key Pad 0 - Key Pad 9
* Menu = Esc
* Enter = Key Pad Enter
* These are all I've mapped for now. Hopefully, future keymap modifier will allow you to define your own mapping.
I am not releasing the source at this point in time. Once I've had the opportunity to clean it up some, I will release. I wanted to get it out there now to get some testing and feedback.
Please do not post the driver elsewhere. Let's wait until it's well tested and we've got a tool to modify the keymap.
All that said, here it is: http://www.twosillies.com/aoltv/aolirkbd.zip
Enjoy! Good luck.
