I've always been reluctant to directly connect external electrical signals to the HP-71B. This machine is quite ESD sensitive and I don't like the idea to damage something. HP-IL is much safer for interfacing.

On the other hand the IR option looks nice, if it is a simple addition.
Like the others, I think the most important is the memory!

Extracted from the HHC'89 conference, here is a description of an IR module proto for the HP-71B made in the HP labs by Bruce Stevens, with the electrical schematic and the PIRLEX source listing:

Waiting for the FRAM71!
