So the good news is that I got my SD card today, and was able to successfully capture some signals from the IR Receiver eblock. Woohoo!
Unfortunately, the raw data is not as easily consumable as I’d hoped. There’s a nice OSS client for the benf firmware XML output:
but pretty much all it gives you is the ability to view the data, and a cursor that specifies the value at any given point…not really much help with analysis.
So I will probably go back to capturing the signal via the Gadgeteer route, as that gives me a better picture of the signal, oddly enough, at least for my purposes of figuring out the protocol.
The benfwaves app does provide the ability to save to a number of different formats, including Excel, so there’s definitely some utility to it, but for a simple IR signal, the amount of data is overkill.
