I have an IR-controlled homemade electric screen masking system that is currently controlled via an iTach. I plan to transfer control of it to a Simple Blaster I will soon purchase. The masking system has a 4-button physical remote control that I will use to teach the Simple Blaster the codes.
The masking system remote is pretty old, and I fear at some point the buttons will stop transmitting. Is there any way to view and save (to a file) the actual IR codes that are assigned to each of the four buttons?
Ultimately, I’m looking for a way to back up these codes so that I am not dependent on the remote control to transmit them. My thinking is that if I had them in a file, on my Mac, I could import the codes into the Simple Blaster (or other hardware device) if the remote should stop working. Is that possible?
I’m open to other ideas on how to back up the codes; thanks in advance for help/tips.
