I'm looking for a solution using a PIR motion sensor and a programmable IR emitter to detect when somebody enters a meeting room and send the same IR signal as the standard TV remote control, to turn the TV on.
I already have a Raspberry Pi, but I have never done any programming. I'm going to be studying the various beginners guides on this forum. I've been looking for a good project to try this out, and this would be really useful for the meeting rooms where I work, if I can get such a solution to work.
I have already bought an IR emitter:

And a PIR sensor:

I read about some software called LIRC which I could use to program the IR emitter.
Does anybody have any specific guidance on how to do this? Has anybody already done something similar?
