I have been trying to decode a some 433 mhz remotes with the rcswitch library. i have tried several remotes with the receivedemo advanced sketch. Nothing worked.

i have this module :

and have been using these 2 remotes plus the one from my garage gate.



i connected the data pin to d2 pin from an arduino nano.

i looked on the osciloscope at the data pin. when i'm not transmitting the line is full of noise.

I have attached some pictures from the signal.

Maybe somebody can give me some suggestions on what i am doing wrong. Any help would be much appreciated.

I have used 433 transmitters / receivers with several projects.
RC-Switch worked pretty often with my wireless remote controlled outlet switches, wireless doorbells and more. But now and then RC-Switch did not work with the protocol of some device.
I have no idea if the devices you want to use will work with RC-Switch.
But the first step is to get a stable signal from the receiver.
Here are some ideas:
- Use an antenna with your receiver. A straight wire, about 17,4 cm is fine.
- Do not place the receiver too close to your computer or monitor. A distance of 0,5 to 1 meter is fine.
- Do not place the transmitter too close to the receiver when testing. 0,5 to 1 meter is fine.
Noise may depend on your environment. If you live in an urban area there may be much noise from other 433 MHz devices from your neighborhood.

(Just a hint, as you posted all links in German language: there is also a German language part of this forum: http://forum.arduino.cc/index.php?board=31.0)
Always decouple electronic circuitry.
