IR protocol analyzer is a universal application for automatic decoding several types of infrared remote control protocol packets. The application uses microphone input of a soundcard to capture infrared signal from a remote control. As a consequence, the hardware receiver is minimalistic and easy to build; just plug a phototransistor to input of your soundcard, that’s all hardware you need.
