Can I get confirmation that it is possible, using the barcodes, to program the robot to move in multiple directions.
At the moment, we can program the robot to move one direction and enter that into the remote. When we go for the second direction and enter into the remote, it does not recall the first direction entered into the robot.
What I would like to see is the robot able to be controlled using the TV remote like a remote controlled car. Can you tell me if this end state is achievable using the bar codes alone?

Yes, this is possible.
To get it to work Edison needs to see “Sony standard” remote control codes, around 90% of all tv remotes use “Sony standard” codes and will work correctly. Unfortunately, that still leaves around 10% of remotes that are incompatible with Edison, it sounds like your remote is in this category.
If you have other remotes in your house you could try them, or you could buy a cheap universal remote and set it to Sony mode. Either way, now that your Edison has saved codes from an incompatible remote you will have to scan all of the remote code barcodes and save in codes from the new remote.
