I've just hidden away our entertainment centre electronics including our Infrared controlled DVD Player, Amp and Mac Mini .

I was wondering if there is any IR Remote code for Arduino, that I can use to eventually control the entertainment centre. I plan to write a simple iPhone app, that talks to an Arduino with an Ethernet shield.

I suspect the Mac Mini will not respond to the same sort of signals that your audio equipment does.

There is a great article about IR with Arduino on the PragPub Issue 13, July 2010 here: http://www.pragprog.com/magazines
