Hi,
I've been working on a project for my engineering course and I choose to make an IR remote control after seeing an article on Instructables ( http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-control-TV-functions-using-Analog-input-and/). Well I've been working with that and Ken Shirriff's IR Library for Arduino (http://www.arcfn.com/2009/08/multi-protocol-infrared-remote-library.html) So far I've had no luck getting a remote to work with either a Hitachi or Panasonic Tv. I was wondering if anyone here has experience with a project like this and would be willing to lend some help? My code so far is:

First Try(100BCBD is the code I received from the remote using an IR sensor) - http://www.textswell.com/read,4243561323955

Second Try(codes are numbers I received through reading raw codes from the remote) - http://www.textswell.com/read,4243572977676

Thanks

What you can maybe try I get a IR detector, point the real remote to it, press the button you want to emulate and see what value you get. Then you may be able to turn around and send it back from the IR emitter on the arduino.

The IR library had a example in it called "IRrecord" that was meant to do just that, I tried it out and still no luck :/

It might be a frequency issue, use the pulseIn() function to get the time in Microseconds, then see what your frequency is.

you need to convert that number into seconds and then invert it.

This would be inverting it: 1/(converted number) = frequency.

Then from that go back to that second code you posted and go from there.
