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?

Use a version like ESP_Easy_mega-20190406_normal_IR_ESP8266_4M.bin
(with IR in the name)
Here are 2 IR project pages

I was wondering how this relates to other IR systems.

"Panasonic A/C support heavily influenced by:
// https://github.com/ToniA/ESPEasy/blob/H ... pumpIR.cpp"

I haven't had time to look into the problems I was having with my Panasonic model units for several months. I will have a play with this new code sometime.

I am glad to see this being included in the the Mega code.

The extended decoding wans't really doing much other that providing the logs with AC temp, mode etc.
In the future when we will be able to use this functionality to also send ac codes based on state, it will be re added.

This is not an easy task to decode as you can capture the data through Wireshark which will show you data in the encoded format you have to decode this to know the more information about it. so far https://uaetechnician.ae/ac-repair-services helped me to capture data.
