Small but very important update… TV Power wasnt working. In the IRCodes.h file change this line:
#define DYNEX_TV_POWER 0x0F//015
#define DYNEX_TV_POWER 0XF0
That should fix the issue… revered the F lol silly me .. also updated Github repo :)
Also added my SD Card images to REPO
Ive been getting a lot of feedback thanks to HAD. Some include…
Use RF recievers on devices and a transmitter on the remote.
Use uGFX for display control.
Use a piezo for feedback (clicks) Accelerometer for wake up and sleep
Vacuform an enclosure
Let me tackle 2 of those with a response here.
RF reciever and transmitter..
This would not only raise complexity but also drive the price up as I would have to make seperate pcbs for each device with their own mcu and reciever and then power each. So seems out of the question right now.
This is overcomplex for a simple remote with no rtos. Its way to much. Not to mention I would have to basically make a bsp (board support package) to drive the display. Why change what works ? :)
The other feedback is still on the table and ill play with the ideas.
Thank You everyone. Please feel free to comment more.
Just ordered another lcd for another project. Just wanted to say that thier support is awesome even tho you have to be up late due to time zone difference.
Their prices are great and the selection is perfect for any lcd need. So go check them out :)
I need to catalog these :). So many though.
Ok here are some pictures for now… I ordered this from Digikey and think i got a dirty board… has anyone else had one dirty like this? Looks like old flux or something…
While I do love my RemoteSeven and will get the pcb made and use it. Im planning on making another one and this time instead of the ra8875 I will be trying the SSD1963 and ARM or simply a A10 or A13 chip from Allwinner.
The idea is to boot Android and create custom ir driver and effectively create a tablet with ir and wifi and stuff.
Not only will this be hard as heck but it will be fun and a great learning experience.
I will continue to work on the ft800 for the time being. Today is solder day. Have been way to busy to rush solder a pcb the last 2 days.
