Hey

Trying to turn hex codes from a generic IR remote into pronto codes, or something that can be used with my smartphone.


Using arduino to get the following:

A32AB931 - ON/OFF
1D2FEFF6
E0984BB6
143226DB
39D41DC6


Getting the ON/OFF is the most important.

Any help at all is appreciated, been working on this for months.

Thanks in advance.

What is "a generic IR remote"? Yes I know the Arduino.

It's a "Summit" brand remote that controls a fan. I say generic, because it's a brand that doesn't really exist. You'll see it branded as something different in multiple countries. Pumped out for bottom dollar in china.

I found some reference to a similar situation here:

It looks like they managed to replicate it with Arduino, but I'm hoping to find the code so I can make it work from my Galaxy S5


Tried this:

No dice so far.

The "funny" numbers of the first posting may be hash-codes spit out from the Shirriff library. These do not uniquely identify the signal, in other words, they are worthless for us here.

Since you seem to be into the Arduino, let me suggest that you get IrScrutinizer 1.1.1 and flash the therein contained sketch onto it. You will need a non-demoduting receiver like TSMP58000, OPL-551, or QSE159 connected to pin8 (for Uno, Nano, ,,,) It is also possible to use the same demodulating sensor as the Shirriff library does; but "the instructions are not ready yet".,

I do A/V installs and remote programming and I have carried a Pronto TS1000 for twelve years exactly for this purpose. Nothing is as good as creating Pronto codes than one of the first generation Pronto products! This includes Marantz up to the RC5200.

The challenge may be that you need an RS232 output. I use a Keyspan USB to RS232 adaptor as, years ago, several brands and models were available and that was consistently the one that always worked. Friends say that there are many more models available now but I have no brand or model information on that.

Barf is totally right, too. No matter what you know or don't know about the remote and the product, you really have to identify the brand and model, even if it's some brand like Geepas. That's a brand from India with a name that, I believe, when pronounced with an Indian accent, sounds like "cheap ass." I mean, what if one of us has actual experience with that unit and could save you weeks?
A good answer is easier with a clear question giving the make and model of everything.
