Many moons ago I lost my TV remote, and the “green shutdown” feature which forced me to get out of the couch every 4 hours during bingewatching really started to bother me.
Since the missus got me an raspberry pi for christmas, i finally got around to address this issue.
Sadly, my education in low voltage electronics failed me. 3 fried IR diodes later i realized that 5V -ne 3,3V, and a resistor would’ve done the trick.
In a shelf i found my old Samsung Galaxy S4, with built in IR blaster and a fancy TV Remote App (see the readme).
And so, the TV Remote UD was born!
