I have a TV Guardian for my television and it doesn't work the way I'd like it to. I got it to work fine and it does what it's supposed to do, but I've found that I don't like what it does. What it's made to do is find profanity by reading the closed captioning and mute the ENTIRE sentence that the word is in. It learns the remote's code with an IR sensor and it is connected to another IR sensor that is placed near the receiver in the TV so it can mute it.
My goal: I would like to make/write something on the Arduino Uno that only mutes the cuss word in the sentence. It doesn't matter to me whether it reads the closed captioning or mutes it some other way (although I don't see how it could work any other way). I want it to be able to find the curse word and mute only the word, not the entire sentence.
I've tried looking up the TV Guardian source code, troubleshooting and having it "learn" the remote's code in different ways, and I've even been looking in these forums for something similar that I could modify and use for what I need. I haven't found anything relating to it yet. I appreciate any help or comments anyone could give me.
I'm also wondering if there's any way to hook the TV Guardian up to a computer and see the code that's written on it and possibly modify it.
