What program would I use to find out the IR frequencies of my keyboard that is used so I can program them using JP1 for my remote

First, I think you are greatly overestimating the significance of Frequency as a defining characteristic of an IR signal, so you're asking the wrong question. You don't want to know the frequencies, you want to know how to duplicate the signals.

Next step is to do a forum search for liteon (most people seem to have left out the - that you put in lite-on in your earlier post). Read the threads on liteon keyboards and see if your answer is already there. A quick glance at one post seemed to indicate that liteon keyboards match an Airboard upgrade in the Yahoo JP1 device area, but you should read a few more posts to see if I understood that right and if it applies to your keyboard (of course testing is the final and better determinant of whether it applies).

If all that fails, then you try to learn signals from your keyboard to the 8811 that I assume you're buying. Though it probably won't learn perfectly, it should learn well enough that you can post a .ir file of learned signals in the diagnosis folder, post its URL back here, and get an answer (usually from Jon) about how to duplicate the signals.

Alright, thanks! Time to search the boards. I searched for lite-on before I think

I did some digging and my receiver is SK-7550R, which is the same receiver as the Airboard model which works. So I am guessing that mine will work as well even though the model number is 7551, it uses the same receiver.

well, the Lite-on people got back to me on my receiver question, this is what they answered

he F/W of SK-7550 and SK-7551 is different. It can't use same receiver for this two both model.


So I dont know if I can use the JP1 airboard remote. How would I know the signals to mine to use in the JP1? Is there a program that checks the IR signal when a key is pressed?
