Hi folks. I'm still here. Just watching all the magic happen. When I get home today will test this out. Note with the comment on the NUC and IR. There are known issues with the IR port disappearing in Windows and in other OS's requiring you to install Windows to "activate" it. Sounds weird but what's showing on Intel forums. I've experienced this once or twice with the IR port going away which may totally mess up my project if I can't have a reliable IR port.

Thanks.

JR

FWIW, an external MCE IR dongle should be 100% reliable, assuming your NUC has a free USB port. I ran one for years without issue.

Not to deviate the original convo, however will an external dongle allow you put the device asleep or wake up, and if physically off, turn it back on? I know my NUC has a "yellow" USB port for charging when off or on if you have it enabled, but not sure that any of the ports are physically active when the device isn't on like the built in IR is supposed to be.

Thanks.

Mine would wake but not turn on if completely turned off. I never turned off my home theater PC since it was doing all my recordings and used only 5W when asleep. It's usually just a matter of getting the power settings right in the BIOS and in the OS for the USB port you're using. Since yours doesn't work right as-is, you don't have much to lose.

But you have to be careful to buy the right one because many dongles won't sleep/wake properly. I've had good luck with HP and Rosewill dongles. Today I use a Diamond (NEC protocol) dongle, but it doesn't support keyboard commands.

I did get my NUC's IR sensor up and running. It took a long time to find the right kind of post because all the searches I was doing ended up talking about what kind of remote to buy. Hopefully the answer soon will be a JP1-able remote.

Don't bother testing the mouse, there is a problem with the right/left portion of the command, Up Down mostly work except you get exactly 3 presses of the button, I need to change the repeating portion of the protocol. But I've got an error in the code when it comes to Right-Left, none of those keys work correctly.
Right Click works (although I got right and left click backwards)

On the keyboard I tried
abcdefghi
A e and g don't work. These are encoding problems and need to be fixed in the executor.

I'm going to work on the mouse first and see what I did wrong on those commands in the protocol there.

So I see that I need to revisit these.

Tip: When creating an upgrade, always include ALL functions from the oem remote, even if you never plan on assigning them to a button. Complete function lists makes an upgrade more helpful to others.
