    I was wondering if anyone had a schematic to creating a universal
    remote controller for your TV, VCR, etc...
    I was also wondering if you had the pic program design.
  2. The main work is not the hardware or the schematics,
    it is the software in the PIC.

    that is true but finding out the codes for the different types of
    televisions it the main information I need. The other parts would be
    nice so I know what parts i would need and what other people used.
    I know that the newer universal remotes utilize those round "blob"
    chips. I was very intrested in the pic design and I also want to
    figure out how much current it will need etc...

    Just buy one for $9.99

    Some one else already did all the hard work.

    Many years ago, I worked for one of the first outfits with a successful
    URC ("Universal Electronics"), and there was a guy whose full-time job
    was to sit there and capture codes from various brands of remotes from
    all over the world.

    Another way to approach this would be to go to the various manufacturers
    and see if they'd release their codes.

    Good Luck!

    The question of the ultimate foundations and the ultimate meaning of
    mathematics remains open; we do not know in what direction it will find its
    final solution or even whether a final objective answer can be expected at
    all. "Mathematizing" may well be a creative activity of man, like language
    or music, of primary originality, whose historical decisions defy complete
    objective rationalization.

    Have a look at the lirc project. I built one and it works very well.
    There are drivers for nearly every remote that you could ever imagine
    on the site.

    A couple of years ago I get interested in IR remote controls; I built a
    PIC project that used a TSOP1140 (which I had gotten surplus) to receive
    remote control signals, and interpret the data stream using a pic. It was
    able to do silly things like dimming lamps and turning on fans using a
    standard remote control.

    wow that is so smart!
    did you come up with that all by yourself.
    Oh, wait. where was this posted at? Which newsgroup?
