Not sure if one would work. But you would still have to have the original remote to program the sequence of data streams into the programmable remote. I do know that the transmitting speed is 37.5mHz and it is an 8 bit stream. I'll have more info for you in a few days.

Not sure if you knew this but the manual is in the photo gallery just about this article.
I did see the link in the community forum but for some reason my computer wouldn't print it. I kept getting an error message. I had to resort to having a friend find it--download it and send it to me-- then I was able to print it-Thanks!
Does anyone have the remote streams? I need a remote, but they are harder and harder to get.
thanks Jax for this thread just found it! I would love to try and hack this parrot, you did not, by any chance have done it already or can provide me with any hints ?
I've been searching but have been unable to to find the IR codes for this parrot's remote. I'd like to try to program a new remote for it.
There's 10 buttons and a 3-settings slider, so it would probably be a list of about 30 codes. It would also be helpful to know if there's any other specifications (such as having to repeat the code twice).
I have purshased a software program to read, playback , and store IR codes (<$20), ANALYSIR. If I had a Squawker McCaw remote, I could record these IR codes and post them. Recently I just purchased for my wife for Valentine's Day, a Squawker McCaw for $39.00 from ebay, no remote. My wife and our friends enjoy this robotic parrot very much. We would like to customize it, but it requires a remote. Looking a remote or IR codes.
Hi GWJax, New to the forum. Where is the upload? I need the manual as I just bought one and want to hack him.
Has anyone had any luck getting the IR codes? I just was gifted the bird from my brother who bought it at a garage sale for 50 cents, no remote, perch or cracker though!
I was given a Squawkers McCaw 3rdhand which is missing both the remote and the battery pack. Can anyone give me pointers on how to wire a random off-the-shelf 4AA battery pack to the three metal contacts in Squawkers' back? I don't want to short-circuit this rare bird. Thanks.
