Allow me to introduce Pierogi, a universal infrared remote control app for the N900. I've been frustrated with the existing IR options, and since I've been wanting to try my hand at writing an app, I decided to go ahead and write my own.

The main features of this app are:
  • A self-contained database of IR codes for a variety of popular devices, based mainly on the LIRC remote control database
  • Independence from the LIRC server -- no need to keep the server running (or even installed) to use Pierogi, unlike other remote control software
  • An intuitive, easy-to-use interface (at least in my opinion)
  • The ability to remember your favorite remote control keysets

Here's a screenshot of the main tab:



More information can be found on the Pierogi website and in the Pierogi Wiki Page.

Pierogi version 1.0.0 is now available in the Extras repository! However, this is still a very young project, and not everything in it will work perfectly. Should you find any bugs, please file a bug report or post a note here.

Also, please note that Pierogi's keyset database, while growing, is still "incomplet and inkorrekt"; some buttons may not yet be supported correctly (or I may have them mapped wrong), and many brands don't yet have their keysets entered at all.

One more request: if it isn't too much of a bother, I would love to know which specific devices actually do work with Pierogi. The LIRC config files don't concern themselves with anything but remote control codes, so I don't myself know what models of device work with what keysets. Sixwheeledbeast has also created a wiki page to list working devices:

http://wiki.maemo.org/Pierogi_Device_Compatibility_List

Please go ahead and edit the wiki to add your device to the list.

Update 8/March/2012: Also, if you would like to see Pierogi add support for a particular device, please place it on the Request List!

Update 25/May/2013: Pierogi now has a Github account. Just go to https://github.com/jpietrzak8/Pierogi to view or download this app's source code.

Update 17/Apr/2014: Pierogi now has a new website associated with the forementioned Github account: http://jpietrzak8.github.io/Pierogi/

thanks for this app. There are many TV sets in it but I have a Daewoo tv. Is there any chance for support of so crappy tv in the future?

The chances look good: the LIRC database appears to contain more than twenty Daewoo remotes. I'll give it a shot and see what I can come up with.

Sadly, I've only found one Philco and one Admiral remote so far. I'll add them to Pierogi, and see if I can find other keyset data elsewhere for those brands...

Well, since you're taking requests, is there a chance to get Grundig and Blaupunkt working as well?

I've tried this for a couple of weeks and it works quite well with
the tv's i've tested it on.
I think it would be great if Mute was in the mainscreen.
But that's just my opinion

Thanks

Edit:
Request
Panasonic TV TX-32LED7F, remote EUR7651110

Would this work with laptop remotes?
Reason: http://osxdaily.com/2011/01/18/apple...he-mac-remote/ and the aiming part suggests IR, not BT, so design students with a bit awkward taste for phones might have a jolly good time
