I have an IR remote and the IR receiver. I have managed to get it working without any problems on my Arduino Mega.
I have programmed it's speed to:
I have figured out that this is the communication speed the Arduino and the device in bits.
The question is: What decides the transfer speed? If I choose to set it at 57600 instead, how can I make sure the devices can keep up? Is this a trial and error thing?
If I set the speed "too low" do I make a safer connection, as in fewer dropouts?
If the speed is too high, what happens? Do I lose all communications or do I get a hacked up message, as the sender can't send fast enough?
