    Infra red communication

    Hey guys

    I have an old device here, but do not have a remote control. So I thought for fun I could try and write a j2me app for my fone that can communicate with it. But do not know if this is possible or not.

    So, firstly, can I access the IRA port with j2me? Its on a Sony Ericsson.

    and secondly how would I know what to send to control the different functions? Would I need to get this type of thing from the manufacturer?

    Thanks for any help or feedback

    You might be able to access the port (try the Sony Ericsson developer site).

    What kind of device do you want to control? If you mean something like a TV, then I'm afraid there's not much chance. You can only use the IrDA port as a serial port, in which case everything you send is wrapped in IrDA protocols. You'd need bit-level access (which you won't get) to control something more primitive like a TV.

    Hi

    thanks for the reply. It is actually an air-con unit. Guess there is no chance then. Oh well, at least I tried. lol. Thouht it would be nice to do. They should just change all devices like TVs, etc to Bluetooth. lol
