So I have many IR remotes as many of you may also have, and also not always in a position for the proper angle for consistant functionality. Anyway I have seen IR repeaters for about 100 to like ~300 dollars! I dont have that kinda of money anymore. I have an idea of how they (should) work; receive the initial remote signal/code then just repeats it to the device.
But I dont really have a clue where to start or how to read the IR code from the remote. Well I know i will need IR diodes(LEDs) but what I dont know is what the code is or how it works or how to read it? I have an Arduino and will use that or really anything to get what i want to work.
Any help is appreciated. Thanks
