I don't think so . You must have the shematics of your receiver ,the data for the tuner ,display , remote control codes, etc ,etc, etc! So many information ,whithout it, you can't do anything.

What sort of software have you had a hand in developing before, and for what types of device ?.

What tools have you had previous experience of ?

there are no 'main parts' to ird firmware. embeded aplication software is all integrated for a specific funtion,in this case ,make a satellite reciever work.
i have been working with st micro chips a very long time and would never attempt such a feat.not to sound negative,but it took a team of engineers years to develop ird firmware. a very strong background in satellite communications,digital radio,embeded software,and i spent months just modifying an ird.

When there is a will there is a way. I have started some work on this for quite sometime. There are some reference source code for STi5500 circulating in the internet. I happen to get a copy and tried to change it from STi5500 to STi5518.

My hobby....
