How to send IR signals from a web app (c#) (through an android device) to an android tv RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am faced with a challenge, I need to build a web app (that would be opened on a mobile device only) and upon an event listener, it sends an IR signal through the user's device (android) to a nearby android TV.

    Any assistance whatsoever (link, docs, sample code etc) would be appreciated.

    I'm not sure if i'm in the right support group, i'd appreciate if someone points me there. Thanks

  • Hi,

    wbhich device is the IR-sender, the android device? If so the default android programmer languages are kotlin and java. I think C# is the wrong language for this. I would do it in JavaScript/TypeScript etc. (client-side) and java on the phone (server-side). You could do it with raspberry or arduino, too. Then I would do it in c++.

    So, why c#?

    Please post your actual hardware you want to use.

    Greetings, Chris

  • Hi,

    The present design would be to send the signal from a web app ( hence c#) through the android device (assuming there's a .net library that can access the IR hardware of the android device and then send a signal to the android TV.

    The hardware that would send the signal should be and android device. User would visit a webpage and hence should be able to control the TV via controls on the webpage.
