Can I self-program a smartphone's universal remote application to get around device compatibility issues?
I just bought the Panasonic SC-BTT370 Home Theater System (http://shop.panasonic.com/shop/model/SC-BTT370) as an open box sale (as-is). In this condition all the included parts were in perfect working condition, though there was some equipment missing including the remote. Now, I know that Panasonic sells these remotes separately, but they also have a free smartphone app called Panasonic Theater Remote 2012 (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.... that is downloadable from Google Play and is able to operate as a remote directly from my Samsung Galaxy SIII. Unfortunately, the SC-BTT370 is not compatible with this application though it is with several other models within their home theater line.
My question: is there a way to hack into the programming of the application and tweak it with the possibility of making it work for my system? Would I need certain software, information etc.? I’ve always enjoyed tweaking with electronics and it sounded like a fun idea, though I’m not sure if there’s any possibility it could work even in the slightest. If you have any helpful ideas or suggestions I’d love to hear them!
