Hi all.

I have an Android media box, specifically a Minix X8H I'd like to control with my
Pronto. The Minix came with a really basic IR remote I've used to program in
some basic functions but would to improve on this.

The box has a built in IR receiver which is configured with a setting file called
remote.conf, this file seems to contain way more commands than the tiny
selection on the remote and also seems to have enough info to generate the extra
codes required.

At the top of the file are the following comments explaining the format

#this file is configuration for each factory remote device
#     work_mode      0 :software mode  1 :hardware mode
#    repeat_enable      0 :disable repeat 1 :enable repeat
#
#    factory_code      each device has it's unique factory code.
#              pattern:custom_code(16bit)+index_code(16bit)
#              examble: 0xff000001 = 0xff00(custom cod)  0001 (index)
#
#    release_delay      unit:ms.release will report from kernel to user layer after this period of time
#              from press or repeat triggered.
#
#    debug_enable      0 :debug disable  1 :debug disable
#
# SW MODE:
#    bit_count      how many bits in each frame
#    tw_leader_act      time window for leader active
#    tw_bit0          time window for bit0 time.
#    tw_bit1          time window for bit1 time
#    tw_repeat_leader  time window for repeat leader
# REG
#    reg_base_gen      set value for PREG_IR_DEC_BASE_GEN
#    reg_control      set value for PREG_IR_DEC_CONTROL
#    reg_leader_act      set value for PREG_IR_DEC_LEADER_ACTIVE
#    reg_leader_idle      set value for PREG_IR_DEC_LEADER_IDLE
#    reg_repeat_leader set value for PREG_IR_DEC_REPEAT_IDLE
#    reg_bit0_time      set value for PREG_IR_DEC_BIT0_TIME


Then the actual data

factory_code    = 0xfe010001
work_mode          = 0
repeat_enable = 1
repeat_delay = 40
repeat_peroid = 50
release_delay    =    100
debug_enable     = 0

left_key_scancode  = 0x47
right_key_scancode = 0x15
up_key_scancode    = 0x46
down_key_scancode  = 0x16
ok_key_scancode    = 0x55

Is that enough information to extrapolate some codes I can use with my Pronto, I
already have direction, OK, backup and home I learnt from the remote.
For example

Up
0000 006D 0022 0000 0155 00A7 0019 003B 0019 0013 0017 0013 0019 0011 0019 0013 0019 0011 0019 0013 0017 0013 0019 0011 0019 003D 0019 003B 0019 003B 0019 003D 0019 003B 0019 003B 0019 003D 0019 0011
0019 003B 0019 003D 0019 0011 0019 0013 0017 0013 0019 003B 0019 0013 0019 003B 0019 0013 0017 0013 0019 003B 0019 003D 0017 003D 0019 0011 0019 003D 0017 00A7


Enter
0000 006D 0022 0000 0155 00A7 0017 003D 0019 0013 0017 0013 0017 0015 0017 0013 0017 0015 0017 0013 0017 0013 0017 0015 0017 003D 0017 003D 0017 003F 0017 003D 0017 003D 0017 003F 0017 003D 0017 003D 0017 0015 0017 003D 0017 0013 0019 003D 0017 0013 0017 003D 0019 0013 0017 0013 0017 003F 0017 0013 0017 003D 0017 0015 0017 003D 0019 0013 0017 003D 0017 00A7

Cheers in advance

Use IR Scrutinizer to generate the pronto hex using Protocol NEC, Device 1 and the hex codes converted to decimal for the OBC. For example Up 0x46 would be OBC 70 in decimal, DPAD_LEFT 0x47 would be OBC 71.

Cheers for the suggestion.

Funnily enough I went and downloaded IR Scrutiniser shortly after my OP. I'll give it another go and report back.

From memory when I used the analyse option on my working learned code it did seem to suggest the device and OBC were as you say, however the frequency reports as different to the (non working) NEC code I generated with those values.

I may have done something wrong as I'm not exactly an expert on this stuff.

I used this when I got my Yamaha receiver that used NEC codes. It worked great.
