John, the IR receiver is a standard manufactured unit, as far as I can tell. I tried using the Mac built-in IR receiver to upload to the Windows side of my MacBook Pro, but I couldn't make it work. If you figure it out, let me know. The downside is that the current software is so lame as to be almost useless. It only stores three days' worth of data. I have used the internet-based program, and it is much better. I think Insulet is also working on a better version of their software that you would load onto your own computer. No doubt, Windows only.
Jim, were you running Windows in Paralles/VMWare Fusion or using Boot Camp to boot under Wiindows? If the latter then I'm surprised that the IR receiver didn't work, if the former then it's not much of a surpise at all.
I'm almost certainly going to need help from Insulet on what protocol they use to transfer the data since I don't know of any IR break-out-box/protocol anaylzer that exists. Hopefully they'll be willing to give me that info - maybe with an NDA.
I have a Macbook Pro and was unable to use the built in IR Port to download the Omnipod. However, I also Run VMWare Fusion and used the IR Dongle sent by Insulet to download the Omnipod in with no problems.
