yea, with a philips remote, i got werid codes, but i used a hitachi remote, and i got hex codes that make more sense, ill post them later, but first i have to figure out whats work with my arduino IDE....
ill post the picture, this started happening the other day, and i tried redownloading the IDE twice, it doesnt fix the problem, anyone seen this before?
if it helps, im running windows seven ultimate 32-bit, 2.8 gigs of ram, all drivers are up to date, not sure about java, i think the IDE uses java, could that be the problem, also this started happening when i used a sony remote with a ir detection sketch, as soon as i tried the sony remote with it, the arduino IDE started acting werid, also, when i tried the sony remote, on the serial monitor window, a odd message super-imposed itself on the window, saying something about the buad rate and protocall, which is odd, because the ir detector sketch didnt decode the ir, just said when it was recieved...
very odd.. and concerning... and yes, i did try restarting my computer... no i will not call a support line and be forced to talk to someone from a 3rd world country that cant speak english, and yes, my computer is plugged in, i do have a keyboard and mouse connected, and no, there is not blue screen showing up, lol, sorry, bad phone support memories.... lol..
also, that black text skewed across in the window, i believe that is part of the message i recieved when i tried the sony remote..
no im not joking about this, not trying to troll you, didnt photoshop this, IM SERIOUS, AND THIS IS ACTUALLY HAPPENING!!
