so i have this rgb led strip thats powered by usb. its got a little control board (see the hopefully attached picture) and is designed for generic 24 key IR remote (literally identical to the one in arduino starter kits), i want to control the leds from an arduino, is it possible to remove the IR from the board and add pin/jumpers, or should i cut the board down and just use the transistors on the end? i know i could just use an IR led to send the remote signals, but i dont have a spare IR reciever to test with, meaning i would need to remove it from the board to put it onto an arduino to grab the signals anyway. id prefer to use its onboard controller (not just the transistors) because its got a common + and each color on its own ground, meaning all the logic for using them is backwards and complicated. thanks for any help, or at least reading this far
