    Turn Your HTPC on From Your Couch

    Hello again,I got the Arduino and got your code working pretty easily. I added the extra serial prints to see the results, and what I found with my remote is that the NEC protocol was used, but actually my power code was different. Code 0xF9EA15 is used instead as the command value.results.decode_type = 3results.address = 0results.value = F9EA15I've got two remotes - one older one, and one newer one. Both used F9EA15 as the power code however there was a difference with my older one in that it doesn't do long presses either - to get the hard reset to work, holding the button didn't work but pressing 4 times rapidly does. On the newer one the long press does keep receiving codes, subsequent codes were FFFFFFFF instead. I'm not planning to use the hard reset - quite nicely my HTPC actuall...

I'm going to try and do a PIC version and I'll update on that but anyway, this has been fantastic to get me started and will be useful for decoding other remotes in future.Thanks very much,

    Turn Your HTPC on From Your Couch

    Thanks very much. I have ordered an Arduino anyway (good excuse to learn them too) and I'll have a go at using those libraries to decode the remote. I'll post here the results. Thanks again,
