IR RX extended decoding of AC Protocols

I noticed in Release mega-20190311 a reference in the release notes to
[IR RX] Disable Extended decoding of AC protocols by default
.

Is there function built into ESP Easy to decode air conditioner protocols?
Where can I find more information about this?

Maximum sleep time is a bit over 1 hour.

Awake times depends on what systems and network you are using. I am using around 15 seconds. Ultimately only testing will tell you how short a time you can use. On many networks the awake time can be reduced by setting a fixed IP address.
