Universal Infrared Remote Control for the N900.

Pierogi is a Universal Infrared Remote Control app for the Nokia N900. It is independent from the LIRC server, and stores all configuration info internally.

The Pierogi universal infrared remote controller is a single self-contained app capable of sending IR commands to a wide variety of devices. At the moment, it is oriented towards television, VCR, DVD, and Blu-ray devices, but a few other types of device have had their command sets entered.


Pierogi for Nokia N900 / Maemo 5


In this app, each family of related infrared commands is collected into a "keyset". As manufacturers commonly reuse a given set of commands rather than re-invent the wheel each time they come out with a new product, many devices can share the same keyset.

Pierogi also follows the classic concept of a universal remote, by having a common set of buttons that are reused for each device. So, for example, the "power" button has the same name and is located in the same position, no matter what keyset is currently in use -- even if that keyset has a different name for "power", or has no "power" command at all.

Pierogi for Nokia N900 / Maemo 5


So in short, to use Pierogi, you first select an appropriate keyset, then press the appropriate buttons to control the target device.

The current Pierogi design is built around a tabbed window, each tab containing a group of related buttons. Depending on the keyset that has been selected, some of these buttons will be active, others inactive. Active buttons are ones which have been associated with a command in the current keyset. Pressing an active button will begin repeating the associated command; letting up on the button will stop the command.

Keysets can be chosen using the "Select Keyset" option in the drop-down menu. If you have a particular keyset you use often, it can be stored in the "favorites" tab for quick access.

I've been fighting with irreco ever since I had to reflash my n900. Pierogi just works (and tastes great :)). The sorting of keys in tabs is totally genius. I love this app! [Rate: 10/10]
