IR remote codes overview

Posted on Wednesday, April 21st, 2010 in infrared, Infrared toy by Ian

Ken Shirriff’s infrared remote control overview covers different ways to interpret remote control codes, and how to extract codes from various data files available online. This could be good background for anyone adding new remote control protocol support to the USB IR Toy.

    Ken’s blog post cleared a few mysteries up for my as to why certain IR code libraries for the same codes could be so different.

    The design doc for the TV-B-Gone at ladyada.net also provides a good discussion of IR codes and how to store them compactly that I think would be helpful for people getting started hacking with the USB IR Toy.

  • KH: Really? They are digital inputs driven by an MCU. The MCU GPIO probably has diode clamps and ESD protection. Have you experienced such failures? Please...
  • KH: Neither. Google "Marco Schweighauser’s 8-bit virtual Javascript CPU" and see the first result. Sounds more like a very limited feature toy CPU.
  • Alan: "8-bit x86 like CPU" - isn't that an 8080, or Z80?
  • Geoff: Is it still Sunday somewhere? If so, yes please.
