There is a very simple and nice program which allows to find the protocol and parameters (address and key codes) of almost any IR remote.
It's name is IR protocol analyser and it requires only a very simple external harware (just a photodiode or phototransistor) as it uses the microphone input of the audio card of a PC.
The protocols supported are included in an XML file which can be edited to add or modify protocols. (I have extended the original XML file with some protocol variants. Please contact me if interested).
The italian remote manufacturer Meliconi has a number of universal remotes which can be reprogrammed manually by using the codes of the original remote found by IR protocol analyzer.
For the NEC code for example the decimal address and the decimal key codes found by IR Pr An can be entered directly on the keyboard of the Meliconi universal remate (no need of a PC software nor cable for that).
