    Lightbulb App Discussion: Adding Infrared Remote Capabilities via Audio

    Basically, I'd like to get the ball rolling with making a low cost (Free, Open Source would be best) IR Universal Remote application for the Android Platform.

    I wrote up this wiki to help establish current info:

    Adding IR Output - Wiki

    Please see the wiki for all the details, but essentially, the hardware involved is trivial. As far as coding, the following needs to be written or ported from other projects:

    • A GUI to manage the buttons and selection of devices
    • A parsing function to read info from pre-made remote control code text files
    • An audio signal/waveform generator
    • A database to store the information

    All of this stuff has been done before, it's just a matter of bringing it all together into one android-based project.

    If the project really took off, future development might include:
    • Support of LIRC, Pronto, CCF, and/or other IR remote file protocols
    • Integrated controlling of WiFi and Bluetooth devices
    • A pre-parsed central database stored "on the cloud" for all major devices
    • Possibly supporting the "learning" of a new device (would need a IR sensor/decoder attached to microphone input)

    Feel free to discuss, correct any errors, bounce new ideas around, etc.
