    Is there any good software you guys know that can transform my Palm into an all-in-one remote?

    Ryan,

    Do a search on pda remote. There was a thread fairly recently on this by Patrick Sun I think. If i remember correctly, it worked but had a short range.

    I looked into doing this until I found out the range is mostly in the 6-8' range without an ugly extender. So I got the ProntoPro instead.

    yes, it will work, but from everything i've heard, the strength of the IR repeater on the palm is not very good. so, you'll have to be very close to the component for it to work properly.
