You will discover that sometimes the IR code you have captured works and sometimes not. To
ensure that a code will be consistently reliable, you can examine each IR code captured and deter-
mine whether or not it is a valid IR code.
What is a valid IR code?
Below you can see examples of what a valid IR code and an invalid code looks like.
- IR signal of “clean” IR code is more recognizable by IR receiver
- Some non-standard IR codes can be misunderstood or stalled by the IR receiver
- Valid code is shorter and replaying it takes less time in macros.
You can visually check a valid IR code’s accuracy: the length of every valid IR code for each remote
should be almost the same, except perhaps for buttons like volume.
The following table shows example of valid or invalid IR codes.
