I'm looking to use/create a generic device to send IR commands to an MCE IR receiver that is read by EventGhost (program on Windows PC). The commands don't need to do anything particular, just follow some standard IR protocol. I'm guessing that I can't just use any combination of protocol and device numbers.

If you were creating a 'solid' IR device that sends easily readable and reliable signals and doesn't have things like toggle bits, what would you use? If it's much easier, I can also use some existing remote protocol and just re-purpose the keys.

Thanks for any advice.

Do you have a remote?

NEC1 seems to be the most common protocol and it does not have a toggle bit like RC5 does.

It doesn't really matter if it's an existing code or not, if you don't have the device that uses it. But regardless, I would suggest NEC1 with device code 211 and whatever sub-device code you like, as I don't think anyone's using that.
