This flow is an example of how to use your device to transmit IR codes to remote control your TV and other devices that have remotes. Make sure you have the Automate Connectivity permissions installed. If the flow logs an error after the correct permissions are installed then your device likely does not have the hardware needed to transmit IR.

Codes available from: https://irdb.globalcache.com/Home/Database

Modify the IR Transmit block to contain ths frequency (typically 38000) and the numeric transmit sequence. For example, if irdb.globalcache.com says the code to power on your device is...

"POWER ON","sendir,1:1,1,38000,1,69,341,171,22,21,22,21,22,21,22,21,22,64,22,21,22,64,22,21,22,64,22,64,22,64,22,64,22,21,22,64,22,21,22,64,22,21,22,64,22,64,22,64,22,64,22,64,22,21,22,21,22,64,22,21,22,21,22,21,22,21,22,21,22,64,22,64,22,1493,341,85,22,3669","0000 006D 0022 0002 0155 00AB 0016 0015 0016 0015 0016 0015 0016 0015 0016 0040 0016 0015 0016 0040 0016 0015 0016 0040 0016 0040 0016 0040 0016 0040 0016 0015 0016 0040 0016 0015 0016 0040 0016 0015 0016 0040 0016 0040 0016 0040 0016 0040 0016 0040 0016 0015 0016 0015 0016 0040 0016 0015 0016 0015 0016 0015 0016 0015 0016 0015 0016 0040 0016 0040 0016 05D5 0155 0055 0016 0E55"

The very first part... "POWER ON","sendir,1:1,1,38000 ...shows the transmit frequency (38000) that should be entered into the IR Transmit block.

Then the sequence of numbers immediately following the comma after the frequency that continues to the next quotation mark is the pattern that should be set in the IR Transmit block. Enclose these numbers in brackets as follows...

[1,69,341,171,22,21,22,21,22,21,22,21,22,64,22,21,22,64,22,21,22,64,22,64,22,64,22,64,22,21,22,64,22,21,22,64,22,21,22,64,22,64,22,64,22,64,22,64,22,21,22,21,22,64,22,21,22,21,22,21,22,21,22,21,22,64,22,64,22,1493,341,85,22,3669]

Ignore the four character hexcode pattern sequence in the data from irdb.globalcache.com that follows the numeric pattern.

An alternative source for transmit codes is http://irdb.tk/find but the raw codes from this source do not seem to work properly even after removing the plus and minus signs and separating the numbers by commas.
