I did try building a quick prototype based on a DigiSpark (ATTiny85), but the converted version of the IRLib library was giving me problems, even after exchanging some messages with the author and applying a couple of fixes.

I haven't had much time to look at it recently, because immediately after the kids were home for their week-long winter break, we had snow and ice that kept them home again the following week!

I'm hoping that next week, I can find a little spare time to try again, using a Pro Trinket, or a Pro Mini. Though, I think the Pro Trinket might pose a problem, because the IRLib send function uses pin 3, which I seem to recall is unavailable on that board...?

Update: I must have mis-remembered. The reserved pins on the Pro Trinket are 2 and 7. So I should be good to go with that (I hope).
