46  Forum 2005-2010 (read only) / Troubleshooting / IRremote lib compatible with SoftwareSerial lib ?? on: May 10, 2010, 12:50:09 pm
Is thre any reason why I can't use the IRremote library in the same sketch as the SoftwareSerial library?

I have a working sketch that receives commands from an RC5 remote and prints the button pressed to the regular serial monitor.

Now I want to display the number to a phanderson.com LCD117 module conneted to a digital pin (other than the one used by the IR) using SoftwareSerial.

I'm getting junk for output on the LCD.
If I comment out the irrecv.enable line, and I hard-code the input for the LCD rather than taking it from the IR, the LCD works fine.

I have examined the libraries and nothing jumps out at me.

Any ideas?

Thanks

OK.
Thank you.
Very good.
Using GET I made it work.
I can get email notification now of a button press on my Arduino.
""It's *good" !!"

Followup question:
Am I limited to "GET" URLs only on the server specified at the beginning of my Arduino sketch?  That seems to be the situation.

Thanks.

I have placed a php file in a folder on a web server that will send an email based on the contents of the text used to call it.

For example: if (in a web browser) I put in the address box:

http://mywebsite.com/myfolder/myphp.php?TO=joe@w.com&FROM=bob@v.com&SUBJECT=TestSubject&MESSAGE=TestMessage

and hit "Enter", an email will be sent to joe@w.com from bob@v.com without any futher action by the user.

QUESTION:

How do I make my Arduino and Ethernet Shield accomplish the same task that I can so easily do from a web browser on my computer?
That is how do I request to go to a new URL once I am connected to a server.  My real goal is to cause a sensed input on the Arduino to generate an email alert.

Thank you so much (mille grazie)
