How many phones do these days?
On the plus side, there's no risk they'll install Peel Smart Remote
Haha true. LG was one of the last IR blaster holdouts. Guess it's dead now.
It's funny, because it's not as if there's any move away from IR remotes in domestic equipment, so the demand should be the same as it ever was, but everyone has dropped it over the last few years. I guess it's just that it's not been something that drives purchasing decisions for many people, and hence including it is an extra expense or use of space that can be cut.
I can't lie, regardless of the stupid pre-installed remote app, I really miss having an IR blaster in my phone. It was always fun to walk past my parents TV and just turn it off.
Would anybody be able to advise if some sort of ir adaptors to usb should work? I've seen some on the market, not sure what is required for it to work. Or maybe as Bluetooth hid even?
