IR Sensor How to Use Manual codes

  • Hi There,

    I'm planning to use the IR sketch to try and control my NAD Amp. I have found the the IR codes for the Amp on their website|D 3020 Remote Codes

    But I'm unclear how I translate this into the sketch, as they look somewhat different to the examples that are already in the IR Sensor sketch.

    If anyone is able to point me in the right direction that would be much appreciated, Thanks

    @Matt-Pitts It might be easier to add an IR receiver (temporarily) to your IR node and record the IR values using your NAD Amp remote. With a little googling, you might be able to find resources that translate the downloadable codes (often Pronto format) to the IR code format used by IRLib on Arduino.

  • Hi I've just tried recording one button press IR value from my remote and this if what I get in the serial monitor, which does make much sense to me, can someone help out here??

  • OK I used the sketch directly from Github and got these values, but not sure what to do with them now? There seem to be little in the way of instructions for how to set this up?

    @Matt-Pitts Looks like you are making good progress but I am surprised that volume up and down are the same - perhaps you need to confirm by recording them again.

    Effectively, you will want to create a sketch that sends an IR value based upon the message received. There is some prior art in this forum post that sends and on/off code in response to V_LIGHT messages being received. You can start by using that sketch to simply turn your AMP on and off by replacing the codes sent in the sketch. Once you have that working, then you can extend the sketch to support the additional codes by adding 2 child devices for source and volume control.

    Does this help?

  • Thanks @blacey I'll give that a go tomorow and report back, really appreciate you pointing me in the right direction
