Here is the final version of U-Control. This was a joint venture between myself and Richard Kot. Rich did the IR decoding front end. I did the code for sending the serial commands to the radio. This is the final release unless we can think of something else to add to this.Hope someone will find it useful.
Added decoder in serial monitor so you can copy and paste the received IR code
Rewrote the code from start to finish, Now at v2.0 Will add volume and mute control in the next update and try to port this over to the ATTINY85 board. Code is posted below. Went from about 200 lines of code to 43.
