View Full Version : IR codes for Clarion remotes?

03-07-2013, 06:07 AM
I'm trying to control my clarion headunit using an IR led. Since my own remote isn't functioning at all, I cannot use this device to learn the IR codes transmitted by the original remote, so I'm looking for someone with a working remote who's willing to help me out :)
If you have a clarion remote and are able to extract some IR codes using a logitech harmony or any IR-learner tool, I'd be specifically interested in the one for the open/close button! Probably a long shot, but if anyone could help me out I'd be very grateful :D

I tried to use this info to control my Clarion with arduino via SWC but with no success :(
I know that such technique works for Alpines and Kenwoods. Anyone reversed engineered the SWC protocol for Clarion units?
