Infra Red Commands From Ezb

Hi Dj
Just another application idea for you.
Currently I control my Tv using voice commands using EZb .
I hacked my universal remote ,made up a few switching circuits & use the digital outputs of EZb to give commands.

I note from Robosapien Video that you inject the infra red commands into its reciever circuit,

Would it be possible to devise a Infred Red Reciever that would extract infra red remote commands ,save it in Ezb,
Connect IR Transmitter to EZB Port
Now you can control any IR Device With voice commands

This is actually an ez process I did this exact idea using the tv remote to increase/decrease the intensity of a light bulb and switch between 5 different bulbs. However I did this on the HC12 microprocessor. You can get an IR receiver from Radioshack that runs off 5V and output the signal to the ADC of the EZ-B. You would have to set up a timer to watch how long the ADC port is driven high, as the IR signal is PWM. I used input capture on the HC12. Then basiclly on the high time you could chop the signal up into binary 1/0s .
There is support for i2c ir receiver to do that in ARC:)
see i told you it was that ez lol DJ
Must do some research over weekend.
Should have known, there;s nothing the EZB cannot do :P
Thank You both
