Infrared

Hi to all I'm new to Arduino (great&funny), and I'm trying to experiment Infrared receiving. I've got a TSOP1738 IR receiver, I've followed the sample in the post http://www.arduino.cc/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1176098434 I've discovered that Parallax sensor is not the same as TSOP :( and now I don't know if I can use it to receive IR data... I think yes, but I don't know if it will be simple as the previous post... someone has an idea or a link fo follow ? I've found another guy in this link: http://hklab.net/wiki/Acoplar_un_mando_a_distancia_en_Arduino but I cannot compile the .pde samples in the Arduino GUI... (copy/paste/compile -> various error :o) where I do mistakes ? Thankyou

The receiver you have expects the data to be encoded with a 38khz carrier.

The TFMS5360 used in the article expects a 56khz carrier which is probably what the remote in the article transmits. I think it's an Xbox remote.

You needed a TSOP1756 for 56khz http://www.tranzistoare.ro/datasheets/208/301092_DS.pdf

If you plan on using a different remote you'll have to find out what it's carrier frequency is.

The code on his page is not for the Arduino IDE but I think needs directly compiled by avr-gcc. I am clueless about this. I'm sure with work it can be ported to the Arduino IDE.

This is the article sort of translated via google http://translate.google.com/translate?u=http%3A%2F%2Fhklab.net%2Fwiki%2FAcoplar_un_mando_a_distancia_en_Arduino&langpair=es%7Cen&hl=en&ie=UTF-8

It's good work but does NOT work with Arduino IDE or avr-gcc/avr-c++
