  1. I am a complete beginner. I just bought the Proton Dev Board MKII plus
    LCD (

    I would like to create an IR Transmitter/remote control for my Sony
    DVD Player (DVP-NS575P) to get started. If I would like to make button
    1 on the board to send "Play" and button 2 to "Stop", how do you code
    them in PIC BASIC?

    I am using Proton Lite right now and has ordered Proton Development

    Thanks so much for your help.

    Best regards,


  2. Unless someone has the control codes for your DVD player, your best bet
    would be to build an IR *receiver* first. Then aim your DVD remote
    at it, press 'play,' and record the ?30? bits of data plus the pulse
    width timing.

    An extra IR Receiver might not necessary. Just open your DVD remote
    case, use your oscilloscope to probe the signal. You would have to
    understand the protocol of the remote using. From there, 'decode' the
    signal from the oscilloscope yourself.

  5. Thanks a lot for everyone who responded.
    I really appreciate it.

    I have tried the user forums at, but no responses.

    Anyway, I will try all your suggestions.
    Thanks again.
