I love the concept!

Forgot to include:
the phone/tablet will simply display a web app with a picture of existing remotes. Each button on this virtual remote will be linked to a recorded IR pulse in a database. Maybe a list of popular buttons at the top or something. But all that is for later, gotta get IR recording/playback working first.

Has anybody seen a project where you can "record" a bunch of infrared remote signals and then "play" them back from a Pi? 

This setup can record raw IR codes via arduino, not sure how to get that into a database on a Pi. Maybe best to hook up an IR receiver to one of the GIOP and try my luck at coding my own recorder on the Pi.

I don't think I need to "decode" the IR signals based on the individual manufacturer specs, just need to record the raw IR blinking and play it back. 

Why? run a few IR bulbs from a Pi through the roof to different rooms in the house, then "play" back the recorded IR signals using an app from a phone/tablet (or continue to use the existing remotes if needed). eg: turning on Air conditioning, change TV channel, control DVD Player.
