Question- Universal Robot Remote "Wowwee"

hi guys,

I have a u command WALL-E that is Infrared (IR) controlled. unfortunately it doesn't have the remote control. So while searching online, I discovered the wowwee "RoboRemote", a universal infrared robot remote that will work with any wowwee robot as it states. It can be programmed and has a usb port that plugs into your PC. Could this work with my WALL-E? Are they probably the same type of IR signals? I have high hopes that this will work ; ) Also I have read that wowwee had a part in making the wall-e toys, therefore wouldn't it be a similar type of remote? They all must be made similar for the most part, right? They all seem to work similarly. I am wondering if anyone knows or has heard of this remote. I can't see why not it wouldn't work...It looks pretty cool! If you guys could give me some suggestions, feel free!

Thank you.

As stated in your other topic, you will need to find out the IR codes for the Wall-E and my searches for this have always come up empty. You could use a USB UIRT to control it, which is similar to a universal remote but the main thing is to find the codes.

If you find the codes, or what you think may be the codes if you pop them on here I will test them through JARVIS to see if he can control my Wall-E U-Command.

Or, if anyone has a U-Command remote and would like to send it to me I can capture the codes and return it to you, contact me privately (contact details are in my user details) and I'll give you my address. Note, I am in the UK so UK only really to save on insane shipping costs.

It might have been better if you posted on your other topic. They have a spam rule on here and I can't tell if this would count or not. If you can find the coding for the wall-e this might work.

@ Wal-E , I was looking for a solution for controlling IR devices and I found a arduino shield kit that you could use the ezb. It was able to record and playback a recorded IR command. I cannot remember the store name at the moment but go search for IR Arduino module and you will see the kits I'm talking about. Since I have not tested any of them I don't want to misdirection you as to which is the best brand for the job. Arduino users use them to interface controlling vcr , DVD players , tvs, Xbox , PlayStation , cable or satellite boxes ect. If I wasn't heading to bed I would further research it. Maybe tommorow. - Josh
