Im trying to program an IR TV remote with my pic18f4520. Its used to control a robot with simple instructions (Left Right Straight etc..). I know this is possible and have even seen a few examples of it on the internet but am still kind of fuzzy on how i would go about doing this.

If any one has any suggestions or could refer me to a good website it would be much appreciated.

Thank You,

Perhaps the thing that would be simplest would be to arrange for the robot to be able to receive the ordinary output from the remote. Just decide on the functions to be controlled, and then which buttons on the remote should do that.

The link is to a site with lots of information on IR remotes -

There are devices available which will output the remote's control signals as digital words -

So it can be a matter of arranging for the robot to take in the output of one of these IC's and respond to the code.
