Martin Danek WinRemote

Martin Danek WinRemotePC Controller and Titler$47 USD
COM port of PC85 x 60 x 25 mm

Description: Hardware & software solution, which allow you to control SONY audio devices (MD, CD, Tuner, Amplifier, TV, Video ..) and titling MDs from your computer (running Windows 95, 98 or NT).
You can control and title MDs in realtime from your PC keyboard or write titles to text file (or load titles from CDDB internet database) and then send them to MD in batch mode. You can also write scripts (sequence of commands) for controlling SONY devices.
WinRemote work only with SONY MiniDisc decks (not with portables). It's fully compatible with modern decks (MDS-JA50ES, MDS-JA30ES, MDS-W1, MDS-JB920, MDS-JE700, MDS-JE520, MDS-JE510, MDS-JE500, MDS-S38,MDS-S37) and you can use it with older MD decks too (MDS-303, MDS-S35, ...) but titling from text file is slower and realtime titling isn't available on older units. WinRemote can be used with SONY mini systems (DHC-MD515, DHC-MD313, DHC-MD5, ...) where you can controll all components (MD, CD, Tuner, Amplifier, ...)
