Some of the less expensive consumer remotes have full learning capabilities, but without computer programming capability there is no way to get these "secret codes" into these remotes. These are codes such as discrete on/off or input codes that don't appear on the OEM remote.

One way around this is to have a more expensive remote on hand, get the codes into it using its programming capabilities, and then teach those commands to the less expensive remote.

I'm thinking though, that there might be a better way. I just bought a Flirc. It's a little USB dongle that plugs into a computer and learns remote control commands using an IR receiver. I'm wondering if that process could be reversed. That is, plug an IR emitter into a computer. Download those secret codes onto that computer, and then teach them to that cheap remote.

Is there any way to accomplish such a thing?
