I'm using a Diavolino and lolShield. The lolShield uses all the digital pins, but the analog pins are still free.
I'd like to control my lolShield with an old TV remote.
1. Can I do this with an Infrared receiver attached to one of the analog pins?
2. Maplin sell the following http://www.maplin.co.uk/infrared-transmitter-and-receiver-10379
Is this suitable for this project? And if so, I can't tell from the info on the page, if I need a resistor or what size of resistor I need if I connect it to the power supply pin.
Thank you for your time reading this and I greatly appreciate any suggestions.
