In the previous write up we looked at how to create a hack to control your TV or Blu Ray player using the Energenie IR sensor. In this section we will focus on using the add on board to record the signals from a remote control and then transmit these signals back to a device. In this write up I am hacking a WooWee Robot to add control from the Raspberry Pi, Python, Twitter or even a webpage. I had a few errors when trying to create this file on the Raspberry Pi where I already had a working LIRC remote file. This hack was created using a new SD card image with no other software installed.
