Hi All,

I'm new to this site, so hopefully I've picked the right place to post this question. If not, please direct me to the appropriate location.

I have a Insignia Blu-Ray player that I bought off eBay which works fine, but came with no remote.

I have a learning remote that I could use, if I could teach it the codes, but since I don't have the original remote, that is a little more difficult than it might otherwise be.

I have built a serial port IR transceiver, and at this point, the receiving side doesn't seem to be working, but the transmitter appears to work. I have a visible (yellow) LED in series with the infrared, and the yellow LED comes on if I transmit a "button".

All I have to do is transmit the codes for this blu-ray player, and I should be able to learn them on my remote. My remote is the Philips 5 in one "Consolidator"

I've actually downloaded the Insignia NS-BRDVD3 mdu file from the file section, but I'm not familiar with the file format, and I don't know how the fixed data and the protocol translate into the actual stream of bytes that the remote sends out.

Is there someone on this site who could help me with this part?

For example, what is the stream of bits that is sent out for a "power" button.

Even more important is the stream of bits that is sent for the "Enter" button. I need this one so that I can do a firmware upgrade.

Your help is much appreciated.

Thanks for your help & support. I finally figured it out myself. I generated codes for all the functions from 0 - 255 using makehex.exe, once I figured out the device & subdevice numbers, and the protocol. The next step is to see if my IR dongle will actually control the blu-ray player. If it does, I'll teach my learning remote. I'll let you know how that works out, but I don't think anyone actually gives a sh**!

Probably too late to ask but I would like to know how teaching your remote worked out for you. Please respond. Thanks
