Atari 2600 Joystick TV Remote Control - Hacked Gadgets

Atari 2600 Joystick TV Remote Control - Hacked Gadgets | AnalysIR Infrared Anlayzer & Decoder for Arduino, USB IR Toy, Raspberry Pi and more | Scoop.it

I wanted a simple remote that could be used to easily control the volume and mute the TV when the phone rings. I have replaced all of my remotes with a single Harmony 880 control which works great, but I wanted something a bit more cool to compliment it. Building the retro remote was fun and simple since the mini remote that I used was very easy to hack.

AnalysIR's insight:

For anyone interested in IR protocols - we have just launched a project for AnalysIR - IR Decoder &  Analyzer GUI (Arduino & Raspberry Pi). Currently we support 17 IR protocols and are looking for more to add as part of the campaign. Suggestions Welcome!

If the project is successful, we hope to add support for Raspberry Pi !

You can find out more and support the Project by visiting http://igg.me/at/AnalysIR/x/3752156 or Screenshot via www.AnalysIR.com

Reverse engineering the Panasonic AC Infrared protocol

Reverse engineering the Panasonic AC Infrared protocol | AnalysIR Infrared Anlayzer & Decoder for Arduino, USB IR Toy, Raspberry Pi and more | Scoop.it
Two of our users in France collaborated to reverse engineer one of the more challenging Panasonic AC Infrared protocols using AnalysIR.
AnalysIR's insight:

Not only did they identify the codes & checksum but also provided some impressive documentation and full source code to help others. Detailed information is available via GitHub which is linked below. This 216 data bit Panasonic AC Infrared protocol is composed of two consecutive frames. The first frame remains constant for every command sent to the AC unit. In common with most AC units the complete configuration is sent with every IR signal (temperature, fan, swing etc…). AnalysIR was used to record and turn the signal into HEX/Binary format from which the reverse engineering of the individual fields was tackled.

MightyRC turns smartphones into universal remotes for household appliances | GizMag.com

MightyRC turns smartphones into universal remotes for household appliances | GizMag.com | AnalysIR Infrared Anlayzer & Decoder for Arduino, USB IR Toy, Raspberry Pi and more | Scoop.it

Having already replaced standalone cameras for many people, the smartphone also has the humble remote control in its sights. MightyRC is the latest in a line of products looking to reduce remote control clutter in the environment where they have multiplied the most over the years – the living room. It allows all appliances compatible with infrared remotes to be controlled via a single app on a smartphone or tablet.

 

The MightyRC system is made up of a box measuring 80 x 80 x 18 mm (3.1 x 3.1 x 0.7 in) and a companion smartphone app. Commands are entered in the app and transmitted to the box over Bluetooth 4.0, provided the smartphone is within 100 ft (30 m) range. The box then relays these commands to the various appliances using an infrared transmitter. The company claims the IR transmitter is good to a range of around 6 m (20 ft), and is so powerful that appliances won't necessarily need to be in the box's line of sight – although don't go expecting the infrared beams to travel through walls. The device also has an infrared receiver, which allows it to learn from existing remotes.

 

Naming each of your devices in the app will allow the MightyRC to differentiate between the them. Further to channeling the controls of these different appliances into the one interface, MightyRC also features a nifty "Activation" function. This feature allows users to program a one-touch control to activate preset functions across different devices. So you could, in theory, setup an activation called "King of Westeros" allowing you to switch on your television, switch the cable box to the correct channel, and turn on the surround sound system with just one click in time for the latest episode of Game of Thrones.

Oscilloscope infrared receiver - using a standard IR Led soldered to a BNC and plugged directly into a spare channel of the Oscilloscope as an IR receiver.
AnalysIR's insight:

A while ago we came across a website on infrared remote controls which suggested a simple way to view IR signals using an Oscilloscope. The idea is to use a standard IR Led mounted into a BNC/RCA plug using a spare channel  making an Oscilloscope infrared receiver. So we set about ordering the connectors, which arrived in the post today. Another way of looking at this device is as a ‘poor-mans’ IR receiver, but if you have an Oscilloscope to plug it into then maybe you are not so poor after all.

USB IR Toy – Infrared Modulation frequency review - AnalysIR Blog

USB IR Toy – Infrared Modulation frequency review - AnalysIR Blog | AnalysIR Infrared Anlayzer & Decoder for Arduino, USB IR Toy, Raspberry Pi and more | Scoop.it

Since introducing support into AnalysIR for the USB IR Toy we haven’t played too much with setting the different infrared modulation frequencies. After reading some mixed experiences on the Dangerous Prototypes forum we decided to put it to the test. So to start off we implemented a feature in AnalysIR to set the modulation frequency and to default to 38kHz at start up.

Recently we have been helping several members on the Arduino forum to record and playback their remote control signals from their Air Conditioners.
AnalysIR's insight:

..... These signals are typically much longer than those of TVs or common media devices. The 2 most popular libraries for Arduino, IRremote & IRlib are excellent, but have some limitations which we have covered in a previous post. In this post we address one particular issue that is proving challenging to users.

AnalysIR's insight:

The smart lamp is a desk lamp apparently not different from the others that are located in the offices, near the PC monitor. However, it allows you to do one more thing: adjust the indoor thermal comfort by interacting directly with the PdC optimizing power consumption. For its construction we have used some pieces taken from a broken lamp. The remaining parts are appropriately designed to accommodate the various components and realized through the aid of a 3D printer.

Simple Infrared PWM on Arduino, Part 2- RAW IR Signals - AnalysIR Blog

Simple Infrared PWM on Arduino, Part 2- RAW IR Signals - AnalysIR Blog | AnalysIR Infrared Anlayzer & Decoder for Arduino, USB IR Toy, Raspberry Pi and more | Scoop.it
In Part 1 of this series, we demonstrated how to send signals using simple Infrared PWM on Arduino. In this Part 2 post we look at sending RAW IR signals.
AnalysIR's insight:

...specifically a RAW NEC signal and a longer RAW Mitsubishi Air Conditioner signal. We have also improved the method shown in Part 1 due to some issues we identified when sending ‘real’ signals versus the ‘test’ signal we used before. (More on that later). In Part 3, we will take the signals from this post and show how to send them using their binary (or Hex) representation, which saves lots of SRAM. Free source code is also provided.

Infrared component starter kit - IR Remote Control by Analysir - Infrared Decoder & Anlayzer

Infrared component starter kit - IR Remote Control by Analysir - Infrared Decoder & Anlayzer | AnalysIR Infrared Anlayzer & Decoder for Arduino, USB IR Toy, Raspberry Pi and more | Scoop.it
To complement our AnalysIR project we are making this starter kit of IR components available as a single order.
AnalysIR's insight:

We created this component kit as part of our original crowd-funding campaign to help makers get started with decoding IR remote control signals using quality IR components along with AnalysIR and an Arduino or RPi. (We also provide this and other kits at a discount via our own site, but only to users of AnalysIR.). After repeated requests we have now decided to offer it via Tindie to all makers worldwide.

 

The kit contains IR receivers for all of the most popular carrier frequencies (36kHz, 38kHz, 40kHz and 56kHz). The included IR LED or emitter can handle low current, 100mA and even short bursts of 1Amp for longer range or laser tag type projects. Again, all quality components.

 

The component kit is available via Tindie: https://www.tindie.com/products/AnalysIR/infrared-component-starter-kit/?pt=full_prod_search

 

A wider range of component kits are available directly via the AnalysIR website: http://www.analysir.com/blog/get-analysir/

Driving an Infrared Led directly from an Arduino Pin

Driving an Infrared Led directly from an Arduino Pin | AnalysIR Infrared Anlayzer & Decoder for Arduino, USB IR Toy, Raspberry Pi and more | Scoop.it
A common question asked on forums is one about "Driving an Infrared Led directly from an Arduino pin". Often there is a debate if a resistor is required...
AnalysIR's insight:

Although the answer may be obvious to anyone with at least a basic knowledge of Ohm’s Law, many are confused about how to choose a resistor value for optimum performance. Often, there is a debate about whether a resistor is required at all, given that the AVR pins are rated to deliver an absolute maximum of 40mA on a pin. (Note: All of the quoted specs in the data sheet are for test conditions of up to 20mA on a pin). Of course there are better ways of drive an IR LED with a transistor circuit or even a constant current circuit. However, in this post we consider only the direct drive circuit, as illustrated in the diagram down below. Make sure to read the caveats at the end of this post.

Poor maker's Infrared receiver #2 - AnalysIR Blog | AnalysIR Infrared Anlayzer & Decoder for Arduino, USB IR Toy, Raspberry Pi and more | Scoop.it
Make your own infrared receiver with two resitors, an IR Led and Arduino
AnalysIR's insight:

Our recent post about the silver bullet IR receiver proved very popular and we promised that we would follow-up with another variant of the poor maker’s Infrared receiver. This time we are using an IR Led (emitter), 2 resistors and any standard Arduino. You will also need to download the Arduino code provided below, compile and upload it. One of the most common problems encountered when trying to decode IR signals is that makers don’t always have the appropriate IR receiver for the job in hand or have to wait for one to be delivered by mail. Here we present an affordable method to allow you to use any IR emitter (LED) as a receiver and as a bonus we are publishing the Arduino code to make it all work.

Infrared Receivers - signal lag and distortion - AnalysIR Blog | AnalysIR Infrared Anlayzer & Decoder for Arduino, USB IR Toy, Raspberry Pi and more | Scoop.it

A review of timing distortions in Infrared Receivers

AnalysIR's insight:

Many electronics enthusiasts will be familiar with how Infrared receivers demodulate IR signals. In this post we show a visualisation of the time lag and distortion of the signals as they pass through the IR receiver for demodulation and noise filtering.  Most DIY projects use the raw timings from the IR receiver to decode individual signals. However, not many will be aware that IR receivers can distort the signal timings by significant amounts. Fortunately, common IR decoders take this into account and compensate for timing distortions introduced by infrared demodulators / receivers.
