My new Samsung tablet has an IR emitter and the PEEL Smart Remote app on it and I was wondering if I could control Lego Power Functions via the IR Receiver.

I think all I need are the IR codes and then I can probably program the codes into the app myself. Does anyone know what these codes are?

Thanks in advance,

Years ago I did something similar with my palm. Back then, there was a app available, which basicaly was designed as a tv remote. You could record IR signals from original remotes and then use the palm to send the exact same signal. We abused this function several times to manipulate the closing/opening function of cars from friends which were operated via IR (yes some cars still have that). If an app like that is available for your Samsung tablet, this should just work the same way. You could record the IR signal for all functions on all channels and basically have "a single remote" instead of four. But you need a app that can do this. I bet this would work.
