Out there

I actually have the same remote you are working with Chase. I however have connected the 3VDC from the Pi to the remote with a ground. It still does not seem to function unless I provide a CR2032 to the remote. I did verify that the 3VDC source from the Pi is connected to the positive terminal of the battery. I connected the remote to the pi and tried to manually activate the remote and I am still not able to get a positive result. Did you have to replace the battery even with the Pi power?

Is it possible to use the power from the Pi to power the remote control circuit board and eliminate the need for the battery?
