SubjectRe: [PATCH] ir-nec-decoder: fix extended NEC scancodes
From
You might want to check the handling against this NEC datasheet

http://www.datasheetcatalog.org/datasheet/nec/UPD6122G-002.pdf

The datasheet calls the address bytes "custom code" (high byte apparently) and "custom code'" (low byte apparently) with both bytes sent lsb first. It appears the high byte is sent first when using 16 bit codes.

I'm away from my computer so I can't check much more.

Regards,
Andy
