WLAN to INFRARED ... - Neubi - 2011-09-11 15:16
i'm using the !great! xbmc-remote on my android galaxy tab to control my XBMC. unfortunately my tv does not support any other interface except the standard infrared remote.
my idea is to build a converter from (W)LAN to infrared and eleminate the remote of the the TV. i'll mount an infrared emitting diode in front of the ir-sensor of the tv and control this ir-diode by user-defined controls (volume, program, ..) given via the (W)LAN interface to the tv.
i think i'm able to build this (W)LAN to infrared device, but how do i send custom commands from the XBMC-remote to my WLAN-ir-converter :confused2:
- is there a standard API for the XBMC remote?
- are there already user defined keys/buttons where i send specific commands via the LAN?
hope i've described my plan/ideas in an understandable way
thx for all comments and ideas,

If you want to control your TV with your phone then you will need to know your TV IR-codes/commands. not XBMC.
The XBMC android remote controls the XBMC aplication on your PC via the network. It's not designed to control TV's
