the model serial is BT38R 920
I guess (note the "guess"!) this is an integrated receiver (similar to TSOP2438
), for decoding IR signals at 38kHz. In which case no voltage dividing is necessary. However I'd still recommend a low-ish resistor from it's output to Arduino's input, say 100-220 ohms or so (just in case you connect two outputs together). Btw you can (have to, probably) use a digital input, no need for an analog one.
how do I set it up? pins and code please smiley
and how can I make it so it reads ir input and send it to me as a number?
so I can make a disttinction with if's and control it with a remote
Pins are the easy part. As for code, not so easy really, except that there is an excellent IR library by Ken Shirriff that makes it easy anyway
It that can cope with most remote control code formats (protocolls), and even for some unsupported via reading raw codes (if memory serves): http://www.arcfn.com/2009/08/multi-protocol-infrared-remote-library.html
