Pair Remote with Vankyo Brand Projector

Hi, I just bought a Roku Streaming Stick+ for use with my Vankyo V600 projector.  I see that Roku doesn't have an independent volume like the new Google Chromecast does, so I need to configure the remote to control the projector.

I also see that Vankyo isn't listed as a tv brand - its a newer, smaller, cheaper brand, so that's not entirely unsurprising.  I am a technical person - I have what I believe to be the NEC codes ( https://www.facebook.com/VankyoOfficial/photos/p.1240285719650962/1240285719650962/?type=3 ) for the remote - I have at least verified the power button code is correct.  I also have an ir receiver hooked up to RPi and I can measure what I have from the remote if necessary.  And I can also verify that the codes work with an ir blaster hooked up to the same RPi.  What I would like to do is use the IR codes that I have and put them on the roku remote.

Is there some way for me to add the TV brand and IR codes?  If there is not, is there some way for me to find a TV brand with similar codes?  Is there a process to submit the codes (if so, how would you want them - I have them in the default `ir-ctl -r` format, but I could convert)?

It would really make a big difference in my enjoyment of the product if I could get this working.

Did you ever figure this out, I have the same problem.

Has anyone else figured this out?

I don't even see Vivitek (a very common brand) as an option here. Maybe someone can cross reference the IR codes to another TV?

Re: Pair Remote with Vankyo Brand Projector

I have gotten no traction from Roku support, so I think the issue is still there.

I did build a workaround - I made an IR signal "translator".  It's a little RPi device that listens for the standard TCL button presses and sends out the corresponding IR signals for my projector (e.g. listen for a TCL volume up button IR signal, and when seeing it, send out a Vankyo volume up button IR signal).  It works pretty well for my purpose.
