Thread: iPhone IR Tv remote control app

  1. #1
    Default iPhone IR Tv remote control app
    I had a great idea! I dont know if you guys have seen those ir transmitters for the ipods you basically record an infrared command off your tv remote with an infrared adaptor on your computer and record it with sound record or whatever, then you transfer that sound to the ipod and attach the ipod ifrared transmitter to the sound port and play the sound you recorded and itll activate the command that you recorded (change channel, volume etc.).

    Ok why this is posted in the app section is because, if someone could make like an app that acts like a sound board and looks like a tv remote, so when you push the button on the app itll play the recorded sound. That way if you get the adaptor you dont have to go searching through your playlist looking for the correct sound to change the channel etc.


    heres the link to the article for the ipod portion.

    It would work if you buy an adapter, but they're out of stock from the site right now. But it seems like a great possibility.

    I used to have a downgraded, homebrewed, hacked PSP and I successfully setup a universal remote app that allowed me to control everything in my house with my psp. I traded the psp for a radar detector though, and now that this is a possibility I would love to do it with my iPhone!

    Great find, and thanks for the info!
