New Potato Technologies has announced its new FLPR universal remote control accessory for the iPhone and iPod touch. FLPR is a dock-connecting infrared accessory that works in concert with the company’s free FLPR application to let users control any IR remote-controlled device from their iPhones or iPod touches. Features include a preprogrammed database of over 14,000 remote control codes, customizable skins and icons for each device, support for a wide range of IR devices including TVs, cable/satellite boxes, DVD/CD players, and lighting control systems, the ability to learn new remote codes from existing remote controls, and the ability to create custom macro sequences that perform functions across multiple devices. New Potato Technologies’ FLPR universal remote control accessory for the iPhone and iPod touch is available now and sells for $80.

A much better alternative would be a WiFi or BlueTooth-iR bridge.
Sit it in your Coffee Table, or stick it to the back wall of your home theatre.
Use an Apple Remote clone App to enable your iPhone as a Universal Remote to control your Amp, TV, XBMC, HTPC, Disc Player, PVR, AirPort Express or whatever.

+1 on the above comment. The obvious need here is for a networked IR device controlled over wifi by the ipod/iphone. Why stick an ir device directly onto your ipod/iphone?
