In the last experiment, I recorded RGB strip remote commands with LIRC and played them. Taking a step further, I tried to miniaturize my remote controller to ATTiny85 processor. Digispark is my favorite development board for this.

I used Arduino-IRRemote library. It default uses Pin 3 for transmitter. However, pin 3 on Digispark is not a PWM, also Pin 3 and Pin 4 are used by USB programmer so I made change to library and used Pin 1 in IRremoteInt.h [line 283] so I can upload code without disassembling again.

# define TIMER_PWM_PIN 14 // MightyCore
# define TIMER_PWM_PIN 1 //3 // Arduino Duemilanove, Diecimila, LilyPad, etc
#endif // ATmega48, ATmega88, ATmega168, ATmega328

Previously, I had translated remote raw codes using irrecord analyze (-a) switch

$irrecord -a rgb.conf

begin remote

 bits 32
 eps 30
 aeps 100

header 9134 4491
 one 591 1664
 zero 591 545
 ptrail 613
 gap 108325
 toggle_bit_mask 0x0

begin codes
 KEY_PLAY 0x00F7C03F

With IRrecvDumpV2 example code, I also confirmed that the encoding used is NEC.

Code to upload to Digispark

#include <IRremote.h> 

IRsend irsend; 

void setup() 

void loop() 
  irsend.sendNEC(0x00F7C03F, 32); //On
  irsend.sendNEC(0x00F740BF, 32); //Off

I programmed and plugged the Digispark to a Power-bank. It is now controlling my desk lights! On-Off-On-Off


I spent all day trying to decode signals from this remote, my tv remote and the STB. STB remote encoding is the only one left to crack… Hope to crack it soon!
