How to build a programmable remote control for TV? Answered

Want to build a hidden remote control for TV in my living room.  Have some ideas on hardware part but still don't have clear understanding of how to intercept signal from original RC and simulate/reproduce it on my device. Does anyone have experience with such things?

Do search for the many Arduino based remotes. There are all sorts of tutorials about how to capture an IR signal and how to use it in your own custom remote.

Not sure what your project is but it may be easier to use a programmable remote and hack it down to what you need.

Well, I'm trying to build small rc that can be hidden somewhere so I can control TV from any other room and nobody knows I'm doing this.
