C# Samsung TV Remote with Serial RS232

UPDATE: New link to source code

This Sunday I was bored, so I made a remote control for my Samsung LC-52SE94U.

The code I have is incomplete (I didn't implement all the functions, some of the buttons are place holders) but if anyone is interested in picking up where I left off, go ahead.

For Power On/Off to work properly you must first disable the Energy saver- which is under the 'Power Settings' tab.

Please let me know if you have found or know of any other codes- I had put in a routine to check all tv codes but I didn't finish running it.

This software controls the TV using the RS232 port on the back of the set connected directly to a PC. This does not work with infrared.

Will this code be able to access the Infared port of a laptop so that the laptop can be used as a "reader" ?
