I got that version with the learning capability.
I read the note on learning capability.
Tried to make MyBlaster learn the codes from my remote.
The resulting keys file contains:
power = 00000280BF
select = 00000280BF
exit = 00000280BF
1 = 00000280BF
2 = 00000280BF
3 = 00000280BF
4 = 00000280BF
5 = 00000280BF
6 = 00000280BF
7 = 00000280BF
8 = 00000280BF
9 = 00000280BF
Huh. Why do all the keys have the same code?
So I ran the learning script again for the same keys.
But this time I did NOT even touch my remote control.
Got the exact same results as the above. Same code for each key.
So it looks like it is not learning/grabbing the IR signals from my
What am I doing wrong?
