IR to USB receiver for printer emulation on PC monitor

Post by dingebre » Wed Mar 28, 2018 5:03 am

Has anyone looked into using an off the shelf IR to USB receiver to capture the printer output and display it on a computer monitor? I've hunted around several different HP forums but haven't seen this. Any thoughts about such a project? Have I just missed a discussion on this elsewhere?

Thanks

I've built one of those (Martin H's design) and it works nicely!
