I have built a web based remote which I am integrating in my Arduino based domotica at home.
Programmatically it all works perfect I have a nice HTML 5 + js site which looks like the Windows 10 menu with active tiles.
I build the complete IR sending lib into the Arduino, it's capable of sending most protocols. But now the problem:
I connected the IR sender to the Arduino and it works. But the IR led has to be quite close to my audio / tv set in order to function. I even removed the resistor and the effect is the same. I connected the IR led on port D3 like http://openlgtv.org.ru/wiki/index.php/LG_TV_USB_IR-Hack_with_Arduino
I read that the Arduino supplies too little power and I need something like a capacitator. But I am still a totall n00b to electronics. Who can help me to boost my IR led?
