Raspberry Pi IR remote

Going Further

This project provides a starting point for experimenting with an IR LED and the Linux Infrared Remote Control (LIRC) package on the Raspberry Pi and extending the basic setup with new features and functionality, such as adding an IR receiver to generate a LIRC remote profile using an existing remote control. You can also replace the basic Bottle-based server with a more advanced version; clues on how to do this can be found online [5].
