Or this which is free and works the same way with widgets. That anymote app costs more than a dollar store universal remote.
but i use Unified Remote (Paid) + Tasker + Elixir to have total control
I use the IR blaster on my Redmi Note 5 (whyred) with Pixel Experience and the best app I've found for that purpose is irplus. No other infrared remote app has as much versatility and customizability.
I've been a long-time user of irplus - Infrared Remote. It's lightweight, the dev is very responsive (I've dealt with him several times), and you can teach it remotes if the remote you want isn't in its database. It also allows you to create rooms, macros (e.g. turn on all your devices), and customize the look of each remote.
If you have a smartphone with an IR port laying around you can try a universal remote app until you find a proper remote. I had some luck with this one: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.binarymode.android.irplus
You can try irplus, I use it just for the freedom to add hex codes but it's very powerful. Very useful for discrete codes, to access to a certain input for example and to create macros also https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.binarymode.android.irplus
There's a version for external blaster
You don't need to search support for your remote, just scan its codes as I wrote in my post, a bit convoluted but works 100% ...
If you turn it off via the remote instead of the button on the TV itself it should be in standby.
The full sequence that worked for me on my Sony KV-M1450D:
I don't know if that TV button might be a button that's different from the power button, since I'm using a universal remote app for android at the moment. That one has "TV off" (I guess the power button) and "TV" as two distinct buttons, so I guess that might be the case.
I'm just taking a stab in the dark here, but mayb the "power on" button that you hit was the wrong one, when it's asking for the "TV button".
Maybe "TV button" just means the button that switches back from AV to regular TV, not the power button.
I use an Onkyo brand learning remote found at a thrift store. Whichever functions are not directly programmable can be learnt from another device. For that I use thrift store GE brand universal remotes and an Android app called irplus.
I know it's probably a long shot, but if you have an Android device with an IR blaster, there are plenty of apps on the playstore.
I like irplus and it's pretty flexible. Might be able to find the exact remote mappings for your TV.
I've been using IR Plus ever since the remote for my tv died. Didn't need anything added to my phone. Check to see if your phone has IR communication already before you lay out to buy or build anything.
128 GB of storage capacity is still less than that of a 256 GB or larger microSD card. High definition video downloads can take up a lot of space. As for the IR blaster, it comes in handy when I use a versatile remote app such as irplus and don't want to bother with using multiple physical remotes.
That's why I still love my retired Galaxy S5. Record new remotes on the computer and upload them to the phone. irplus is a f**k ton better than the peel remote crap.
I've been happy with this ugly thing for a few years now, I have to record the codes on my computer with an equally ugly recorder. Took a small learning curve but I'm fairly confident that anything that doesn't work is due to the physical eye(phone) not transmitting on the same frequencies.
Second hand stores are good place for dirt cheap remotes, just finding the right brand is a b**ch.
If your not scared off by command prompt there's USB IR Toy v2 it ain't pretty, but I'm happy with mine.
As for an app to understand the capture enough to spit it out there's another ugly app irplus it's possible to prettyfy the remote with abit of patience.
Right now I'm using two apps (because of compatibility)
Mi Remote Controller: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.duokan.phone.remotecontroller
Just in case anyone finds this in a future search or something... I tried every app that was suggested. I tried them for weeks at a time and I think the app that u/AlexF-reddit suggested was the best. It's very bare, doesn't run in background, and is very customizable. It has one banner ad at the bottom of the screen, but it doesn't really bother me.
Link to app in Play Store
I prefer irplus It doesn't look pretty but it's very functional, and no adds. The big plus is it will accept standard remote configuration files.
There's a lot around. I know for sure that this will let you send whatever code you'd like if you can find it as I used to to change settings the standard app didn't have buttons for. It's ugly but powerful, I'm sure there would be another app that has the right codes that would work if you look around the play store.
If your phone has an ir blaster you could use it a remote.
I love IR Plus
I use irplus. It's programmable through xml. It works with anything you can find the pronto codes for.
Install irplus and switch that shit off.
You can use a phone via irplus Android app.
cant read from remote but customizable: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.binarymode.android.irplus
If you have an android phone with ir you can give this a try:
I use irplus
It has a huge list of devices and if your device isn't on the list the maker takes requests
Ive tried like 5 different ones. This one is the best ive used so far.
I hated Peel Remote from day one. irplus is much better, it ain't pretty, or feature packed but it's bullshit free.
unified remote (paid) to be able to shoot from tasker
I've been pretty happy with irplus if you're looking for an alternative.
Ir plus, make a widget. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.binarymode.android.irplus
irplus free, minimally invasive ads, great support, easily customizable remotes, rather large database.
There's a ton of apps like this on the Play Store. Do they not work for you?
The first one that comes up when I search for "IR remote" is fully customisable: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.binarymode.android.irplus
