IR Control via UART

Version: 1
Status: Under development

Download: /files/project_builds/DynexDemo.zip

Basically with this code and a usb to UART ic and IR led board, i control my TV and Cable Box.
My TV is Dynex brand 55"... Not sure on exact model but ill update when i can...

My Cablebox is Cisco Explorer 8642HDC , but this will work with most TWC Cable Boxes
All remote codes where read direction from IR pin on remote to ensure i got it right.
This is all open, i dont care what you do with the code... just be nice and dont do anything illegal :)
In the ZIP under src folder you will find a header file called remote codes... these are the codes to control the tv and box..


To control the TV over UART you would send : (TV Device code is 0xA0) (located in the header)

0x31 DEVICE_CODE COMMAD_CODE
to control the cable box (Cable box DEVICE code is 0x1B) (its in the header also)

0x32 DEVICE_CODE COMMAD_CODE
If you have any issues just ask me.

No problem, im actually no where near done but it was recommended i upload it for others so i did :)
I hope people can get something out of it... since its still not 100% yet but works as is... Im making a nice GUI for it, to use on my PC
