I had some time today to assemble the new dock boards with the esp wroom 32 modules.
I have tested the IR learning and sending capabilities with the acrylic cover on top and it works. I need to get longer USB-C cables and then I can test the range, but so far approx. 2m in 90º is covered. Also there is a jack plug for IR extenders.
So the following features will be added to the remote:
- change the charging LED brightness from the remote settings page
- IR learning & sending & support for various codes
All the above still needs to be coded, but I am happy that the hardware works.
