TV IR remote to Speaker IR remote code translator

Arduino
recieve IR codes from TV IR remote control, send code for speaker system
You will first need to gather the IR codes for your TV's remote and your speaker system remote. See "IR Remote" tutorials elsewhere for how to do this. The below is for LG Magic Remote and EDIFIER R1280DB speakers.
#include <IRLibSendBase.h>
#include <IRLibDecodeBase.h> // First include the decode base
#include <IRLib_P01_NEC.h>
#include <IRLibCombo.h>
#include <IRLibRecv.h>
IRdecodeNEC myDecoder; // Now declare an instance of that decoder.
IRsend mySender;       //pin 3 is set aas IR LED transmitter output by IRLibSendBase.h
IRrecv myReceiver(2); //pin number for the receiver

void setup() {
  myReceiver.enableIRIn(); //Start the receiver
  pinMode(4, OUTPUT); //BLUE LED CONNECTED TO PIN 4
  pinMode(13, OUTPUT);
  digitalWrite(13, LOW);
}

void loop() {
  digitalWrite(4, LOW);

      switch (myDecoder.value) {
        case 0xFF827D: mySender.send(NEC, 0x8E7906F, 0); //if rcv TV VOL UP, send SPKR VOL UP
          delay(25);
