How do I use built-in IR on my LG or Sony device?


LG and Sony have taken a slightly different approach with how 3rd party apps can control the IR in their devices.  Rather than giving developers direct access to the IR blaster itself, we can only send commands to a "device" that has already been set up in their own app.

Before you can set up the volume plugin on one of these Android phones or tablets, you will first need to create a new "device" in the other app.

For LG devices:  Open the "QuickRemote" app and create a new profile for any room and add a TV or AVR (whichever you intend to control from the plugin).  Once this is done, you should be able to choose that device while setting up the volume plugin.

For Sony devices:  Open the Sony "Remote Control" app and register a new device.  It can be a TV or AVR (whichever you intend to control from the plugin).  Once this is done, you should be able to choose that device while setting up the volume plugin.
