    Capabilities of the Nuvoton CIR infrared receiver (NUC built-in)? Does it "understand" the IR signals (codes) from a usual TV remote control?

      Dear all,

       

      I will get an intel NUC 5i5RYH soon, which I am going to use as an HTPC at our living room. I do have a Panasonic Viera TV 'TX-L42V20E' with its regular TV remote control, model N2QAYB000504.

      Considering the software 'EventGhost' (http://www.eventghost.org/) to steer this intel NUC, especially the media center software 'Kodi' (formerly known as XBMC: http://kodi.tv/), I am interested in the inbuilt Nuvoton CIR infrared receiver capabilities.

       

      Does this NUC built-in CIR infrared receiver most probably "understand" the IR signals (codes) from a regular TV remote control (e.g. the Panasonic TV remote control mentioned above)?

       

      Thus, can the HTPC 'learn' these IR codes, utilizing the software 'EventGhost'? Or maybe 'WinLirc' (http://winlirc.sourceforge.net/)? I will install Windows 8.1 Pro 64. Eventually as "raw" codes, which represent the remote control buttons?

       

      I already 'googled' a lot and asked Panasonic, whether this TV remote control sends its IR signals based on the infrared protocol RC-6. But they were not able to provide me with this piece of information. Many thanks in advance for your answers.

       

      Kind regards,

      Jo Peters
