Thanks, this could be an alternative way to get RF out of a non-RF-capable successor remote, but I would still be stuck with finding a way to block the IR. Since this method presumably detects the current draw of the IR diodes, I couldn't just disconnect them. Did you have an alternative remote in mind that would be more readily serviceable and takes AAA batteries?

On URC made remotes when the IR goes out, so does the RF. Many of water-proof mxw920 have problem with IR going bad, rf won't work either. It tells you the IR is faulty.


So how about replacing the IR LED(s) with a "null-IR diode", like 1N4148 for example. Possibly two in series, since the IR LEDs has a somewhat higher forward voltage drop. Or possibly just a resistor will do. Worth a try.

The drawback is that it severely impacts the battery performance. Ca only be used with AA or AAA batteries.

BTW, I once located the patent for the "flying saucer" type of IR -> RF translator. Turned out that it was absolutely void of any useful information on how the IR was detected. How could that patent pass?

I would assume that is true.
