    Ian, I have always wanted to use my phone as a remote for my tv and wondered if you or anyone else has thought of how one could use the headset jack on a phone for slow speed bidirectional communication? I think an IR toy for youe phone would be awesome…not to mention serious tv begone idea going on.

    With the new Android phones you can use them as a TV remote without any external stuff, providing you have one of the new intelligent TV’s – can’t recall what they call them, but read about it somewhere recently.

    Anybody used an IR toy (or any other IR device) to trigger a Nikkon camera in place of the Nikon IR remote? Interested in triggering a Nikon F60 (yes one that uses film), but don’t have a Nikkon remote to test.

    No unfortunately. I can’t say I’ve spent any great time looking though. I can (and do) use the timer to let the tripod stabilise, but it would be nice to have a non-contact solution and seeing this post just reminded me that I was thinking of looking in to that.

    Though I searched the other day and found nothing, I have found by searching the forum that osbock has already done this with a TV-B-Gone http://dangerousprototypes.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=29&t=2554

    I also found one trigger through USB on Chris Rieger’s site http://chrisrieger.com/projects/nikonremote

    Turns out yet another Nikon project was almost sitting in front of me, this one using an MSP430

    Also turns out deal extreme have remotes ready made for under $3 with free delivery! – So not even worth considering building something.

    Could this be used to autonomously detect ir signals and replay them? I was thinking about repurposing an old remote to, for example, mute my TV for five minutes of commercials and then automatically turn it back on.
