[Question] Can I run Pi-Hole + wifi universal remote

Thu Jun 10, 2021 8:55 am

I am new to pi awareness and pi projects and still unsure whether this subsection is the correct place to post this question.

So I recently learned about pi hole and I would like to pursuit that project, along with it I plan to hook up 4-6 ir blasters and 1 receiver to turn it into wifi operated universal remote as well.

1. Wrong sub section. This one is for the print and on-line versions of the monthly magazine MagPi.

2. Yes, possible.

I don't see why you couldn't do both on the same Pi.
Possibly it depends what you mean by "wifi operated universal remote".
My PiHole Pi also runs an MQTT broker so it gets messages over the network and responds to them in various ways.
PiHole needs the Pi to be always connected to your network, ideally by Ethernet, though it works over wifi too.
