Hi there people
I have my HTC m8 a few days now and I am absolutely happy with it so I was playing around with it and noticed that you can create custom IR commands with the tv app
So I went on and grabbed my RC helicopter and its IR remote and started configuring it and boom!
It went flawless I could control the helicopter with my phone!
So I was wondering does anybody have anything else that can be done with the IR blaster?

Post down below I'd like to hear

I did that with my M7 last year. The bar went nuts! I've noticed now many bars have put black tape over the IR receiver to stop my fun!

I have mine setup to contol the lighting on my PC, and to turn on/off a relay to power my chromecast (I use a PC monitor so no ir on it). It's also nice to just not have to find a remote for the TVs around my house since I rarely touch them.

The first way you can just do the unknown device and program it yourself, but that sucked for layout so i got a free appletv ir app off google play. Much easier and same setup as an apple tv remote.
