Ok, so I worte in a while back to figure out how to transmit using an IR LED to control my tv. I figured that out thanks to you guys and I am almost done with my project, but have encountered a strange occurrence. Essentially I am using a button to send the desired signal, and the code is working and my circuit is functioning as the code dictates. But I can get it to detect input merely by hovering my hand near the wires leading to my button. This is causing a false input and sending the signal even when I haven't press the button.
How do I stop this or prevent this from happening?
