using Arduino to control a DVD player

by kahara on Fri Jan 30, 2009 2:06 pm

I've read several posts about setting up Arduino to function as an ir-receiver, but I want the opposite; I want to remote control a DVD player with my Arduino.

Using the original remote in combination with Arduino turned out to be difficult, so my idea is to use an ir-LED and send the right command codes (even more difficult...).
I've searched the internet for examples, libraries etc, but couldn't find anything useful.
What I did find was a site with command codes for all kinds of ir-signals, but I have no idea how to translate them into something Arduino would understand.
The Blue-ray player is a Sony BDP S350

I only need to configure a few signals (power on/off, play, pause, previous / next).

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
