[Enhancement] export/import IR devices #272
Why exactly does this save a lot of trouble? The only use case I can imagine is having a family member or friend with the same type of TV using your configuration. However, the entire process of exporting, sending it to that person and importing it there seems rather cumbersome versus just re-pairing the remote over at the other persons' Homey.
It would probably not be that hard to build, but I'd like to see a use case specified first, because I don't think this feature would be used often enough to justify the cost of building and maintaining it. Then again, I could of course be wrong, so if you'd take the time to explain why this would be useful, I'd really appreciate it
Well @goldenice i get the point of @bvdbos. If a remote is not recognized in the wizzard mode and you need to add all buttons manually, this is a lot of work if you need to do this for a few remotes. If this data could be stored in some database, and be used by all homey users, then this would save users with the same remote a lot of work.
Even if you needed to return sometime back to factory default and could import all this IR- learned devices again, it would be nice.
