Controlling things with an IR Remote is fun. Here's what some of my remotes send out, for easy (re)use in projects with an IR Receiver. Sniffed the codes with a Vortex robot, made up the names in the tables myself.
RC6 'windows' remote
This sends 36-bit RC6 codes. They all seem to be of the form 0xC8034x4hl. The leading C doesn't show with my current decoder of choice, or isn't really there. The x is either 8 or 0, flipping for each key pressed, so you can distinguish between a key being held or pushed twice in a row. The h and l indicate the variable bits in the code sent, the table below gives a name to each of these. Order is a left to right, top to bottom scan of the remote, treating the volume and channel + - as one, rocker, button.
This El-Cheapo remote came with one of my RTL-dongles. Decodes as an NEC-code, sending a 32-bit code when a key is pressed, followed by a 0-bit code as long as the key is held.
