    infrared raw/driver/hardware access?

    Hello,

    I've been looking for a way to create a kind of 'remote control' program, particularly for Series 60 Nokia 6600, albeit there is hardly any success yet. Series 60 SDK is pretty brief on infrared topic and as far as I understand those documented methods for infrared communication are alredy with some kind of protocol underneath. What about raw turning on and off thar IR LED?
    There is one product on market that does something similar - Psilocs Total irRemote (www.psiloc.com), so I tend to believe that it is possible...
    Anybody can help with documentation, links, hints? What I have missed?

    Thanks in advance,

    Gatis

    Some time ago I heard someone from Psiloc (on Nokia's developer hub I guess) to talk about this application. And it is clear that there is no documentation, links or hints..:-( The guy said that they figured it out by trying and trying and trying various settings and "magic strings" to force the IrDA do what they wanted. So I guess you will have to test a lot, but in any case it is clear that without at least some starting information it is an formidable task... I think that you should start somewhere outside of Symbian world getting more information how IR works and then try to implement it on Nokia's phones. good luck...

    Hello,

    Im looking too for information about hardware access to IR LED.

    I want to send bit with various period but i don't find an other way than send caracters string....

    I have hear about psiloc solution and too that they have write a special driver for the IR led.Someone can affirm this hypothesis or the use of magic string?

    If anyone have information please...

    Bondinit, what about for S60 3rd edition MR SDK (for OS v9.1) do you have the documentation to get raw IR access for that? Please enlighten us if you do....
