Description

Project tested and working perfectly

Control your PC with TV remote..

Now you can control your mouse cursor and windows media player® with your TV remote... So when you are watching a movie or listening songs on your PC, you need not to get up from your seat to change the volume or to change the track.. you can simply use your TV remote to do this for you

Little description of the project:
This project is an implementation of RC5-remote reception on an 8051 microcontroller. The received code is decoded and sent to the PC IR remote software written in Visual Basic. The cursor position is moved according to the keys pressed.
There are two modes of operation one is as mouse control and second is Windows media player control.
More information on key control is given in the software's help section. You might need to download the VB library files to run this software.

If the software gives an error of missing file "MSCOMM32.ocx", the use the ocx file supplied in the zip file and follow the instructions below:
  1. Copy MSCOMM32.ocx in "c:\windows\system" folder.
  2. Go to Start-> run and type "regsvr32 mscomm32.ocx" and hit enter.
    "It will give you a success dialog.


VB Source for PC remote software available here

Yes! thats true... below is a working demo of this project..

@rony, please post your problem in forum explain what is the issue. Use post a question button.
@raj_khatik, I dont know why you want to merge two codes, But please use forum if you need help in merging. explain why you need to do that way.

You can use a universal remote and set it for RC5 protocol.

@pavan_san software is very old written in vb6.0 and I am not sure if that library is compatible with win8 or 8.1 This may need some rewrite. Please use forum for further help.

ajay_bhargav
25 Feb 2015: 13:56 PM
You can use PIC, but this code will not work with PIC as its for 8051. So you will need to write a new code for it.

hi sir, thanks for sharing this project, i'm an electronics students and this might be the first project that i'm willing to make, i have many questions, the main one is: how to program the microcontroler sir? do we need a pogramming circuit or something like that?

ajay_bhargav
13 Mar 2015: 07:40 AM
@floydpink, Yes controller needs a programmer (external circuit). If you are using a controller with ISP (In-System Programming) (e.g. Phillips P89C51RD2 or atmel 89S series) then you dont need special circuit.

@yacine, Of course yes!

thanks for the quick reply sir, i'm a beginner and i have no idea about microcontrollers and their programming. i would be glad if you enlighten me sir. well, the rar file includes 3 program files .hex .asm .exe (plus the .pdf ans .ocx) can you please tell me which files are microcontroller program, and how to transfer them to the microcontroller
i'm using the AT89c4051-24pu

what is the use of these files and how we use it ;mouse.asm or mouse,hex

  
ajay_bhargav

@Alex Elias T, Please download it using "Download File" button.
@Mohd Ashad khan, mouse.hex goes inside controller and mouse.asm is actual assembly code.

sir how to know that the tv remote is based on rc5 protocol...
  
ajay_bhargav
06 Apr 2015: 05:43 AM
It's to say how to identify. But old to remotes that used to come with 90channel to kit were RC5. They may not be available these days but you can use universal remote which can be configured in RC5 mode.

I have tried a lot to simulate it in Proteus but still I am unable to simulate it. Can you provide its Proteus file which you have used for simulation.
Waiting for your reply

Good day sir. may i know how to determine if the tv remote is Rc5? what programming tools that you use in building the codes? how to import hex file in 8051.
thanks for the fast response....
  
ajay_bhargav
01 Jan 2016: 06:32 AM
@Babar Shahzaad, you cannot simulate IR in Proteus. I am not sure if new version of Proteus provide this facility.
@electronics052191, Code is written for keil assembler. You need a programmer software to program hex in 8051.

Is mouse.asm file in above zip file is Source code for this project..??
  
ExperimenterUK
08 Oct 2016: 20:17 PM
@shubham kansara
mouse.asm is the source code for the program that loads into the AT89c2051.

For the source code for the program that runs on the PC , follow the link
"VB Source for PC remote software available here", above.

hello! newbie here. i am kind of a guy who hates using ready - made existing libraries, so this helped a lot as i was trying to control and write to a character lcd display. however, i can't figure out how to set the cursor position. for example, i want to set it to the 5th column in the first row, so position 5. so according to the table, i am sending 10000101 on the 8 data lines of the lcd (register select pulled low). the cursor does not move there however. and i cant move the cursor left or right too. is it something wrong that i am doing? thank you.
