    Hi,

    I'm an Android beginner developer.
    I recently bought a Sony Tablet S and trying to create my own IR Remote App...why?

    Sony default IR Remote App don't provides macros.

    Here are the main features i'm thiking about:


    1. A dialog box popup automatically when tablet is removed from his dock and shaked...this is managed by a local service)
    2. This dialog provides two options : 1) Default usage of the tablet or 2) Launch my own IR Remote App
    3. This custom App provides only 2 macros : 1) Listen to music or 2) Watch TV

    Main challenges i'm facing (as you can easily imagine) is the IR interface implementation.
    There's not much code sample on the web, probably because Sony Tablet S is the only device on the market embedding IR interface.

    Here are my questions :

    1. Do some one has successfully experienced this technology ?
    2. Is it necessary to root the device before coding with IR interface ?
    3. Do Sony provides specific library to access to IR interface ?
    4. I suppose that each device that i want to remote control (Denon amplifier AVR-2311 and DVico Tvix 6600n for music listening) has an Infrared Hex Code. How do i use it in my classes ?

    Waiting for your help [​IMG]

    It seems that Sony is not going to provide an API to access Sony Tablet S IR port !?
