Thanks!

I'll try some again tonight after work

I found some other apps to simply learn IR codes for other devices but they dont work on my G Pad. I've heard, that one can only access the IR sensor with the LG SDK, and most (probably all) apps wont be able to use this sensor. Does anyone have a solution for this problem?

Best Regards

Have this problem on the LG Pad 7.0 lte, while using a digital cam I can see the IR with the stock app, other apps don't send the IR signal.

LG has not opened up the api. Therefore the non stock remote apps do not work.

Any news on this? Could we not just replace the locked LG IR 'driver' with an open one? (I'm aware that 'driver' isn't the right word, but forgotten the android equivalent >_<)

With my admittedly small experience in this area, I would guess someone would have to write one from scratch / reverse-engineer the original one in order to get anywhere.
