[Q] IR Remote Programming Help
Hi guys. I am using Smart IR Remote and can't get it (or any other app) to learn the color codes for an LED strip I bought from eBay. It's a generic strip that comes with a remote and a receiver. I was able to get the app to learn the "on" and "off" commands after a few tries, but the colors just won't program in. I believe that the problem is that the codes are too long for the receiver to read.
The developer of Smart IR Remote backs this up , "If the colors aren't working, that's probably because their IR codes are somehow incompatible with the phone's IR Blaster / Learner. That can either be caused by a frequency that can't be handled by the phone, or a command length that's too long for the phone's blaster. It's something we've seen happen with other LED strips as well." They let me know that they are currently looking into this.
I need to get the commands in Pronto HEX format to use with the app, but have no idea how to do this without using the IR receiver.
Is anyone able to make any suggestions about how to get the codes (without purchasing hardware) or another app that may work temporarily? I have also tried ONEtrtaV2 from XDA which wouldn't learn any of the commands.
I have used Smart IR Remote to record another remote that worked fine.
I am using a Google Edition HTC One running Android 4.3.
Thanks in advance for any help!
