I'm getting really excited about this whole R-Pi thing, its looking great so far.
My first project is going to be using the R-Pi as a media server. Its going to sit just behind my amp, connect via HDMI, run a small web server that will serve as a front end to m-player.
I'm pretty confident that I can get all this running but I was wondering if I could use a GPIO to control the amp. My amp has got a plug on the back to accept an external IR receiver and I guess I could just bit bang the IR codes across.
My questions are,
1/ Has anyone got any experience doing this?
2/ Is there anything pre-built out there which would avoid or simplify the sending of an instruction?
3/ and does anyone know how/where I can find a wiring diagram for what I can only presume is a 3.5mm jack.
For reference, my amp is this http://www.amazon.co.uk/Onkyo-.....01VEI290
