Hi Guys, I am trying to follow the IR Communication tutorial found here.
I implemented the circuit as instructed with the exception that I added the Max Power Circuit found here
I have attached an image of my breadboard set up so you can check my work. ( I am using the Ardweeny, and my button is a bit rigged but its working.)
The problem I'm having is with the last part (Example IRrecord.ino) I can receive just fine, It displays:
Received unknown code, saving as raw m5150 s1800 m800 s950 m750 s950 m800 s1800 m800 s1800 m2550 s1800 m800 s900 m800 s950 m800 s950 m750 s950 m800 s950 m800 s950 m750 s950 m800 s950 m800 s900 m800 s950 m1650 s950 m800 s950 m750 s950 m800 s950 m800 s950 m750 s950 m800 s950 m750 s1850 m1650 s1800 m800 s950 m750 s950 m800 s950 m800 s950 m750 s950 m1650 s950 m800 s1800 m800 s950 m800
When I push the power button which should be fine.
However the TV wont pick this up when I transmit this from my board. I can see the IR Diode transmitting with a camera. I thought it might not have enough power which is why i implemented the Max Power circuit. I uploaded a video of my circuit LED next to my remote LED to compare power and they seem to have slightly different output power but i dont think its enough to hurt anything. You can see the video here.
Any ideas what might be wrong?
