sgt panties Posted December 18, 2015 Report Share Posted December 18, 2015 Hi, I have an old Kloss 88 table radio that I'm partial to and would like to use as the speakers for my HDTV system. (I need the FM as well.) The problem is I've lost the remote for it. I recently bought a Flirc and I'm in the process of consolidating my remotes, but a profile cannot be found for the 88 in any of the several manufacturer-published lists I've seen. A Google search comes up empty as well.So my questions are, obviously the signal from any single remote keypress produces an infrared pattern and a learning remote will store that pattern in memory. Well, why don't we, as advanced enthusiast consumers, have access to that pattern? Let's say some guy out there does have the Kloss 88 remote and has taught his universal. Why can't he extract and trade his patterns with me? Is there some industry standard protocol for remotes that I don't know about? If not why not? If there was and there was some standard way to digitally describe a keypress, I could just look up the keypresses I need in some database and I could just upload them to my universal.OK maybe this is part of the answer: A keypress generates an ultimately analog signal. A learning remote samples that signal, coverts it to digital, and stores the numbers in memory. This is necessary since there is no such thing as analog memory. Since many manufactures have different ways of sampling and digitizing the signal, no one numerical pattern exists for any given keypress. Can anyone speak to this?
