VCR IR Receiver


I'm sorry that my 1st post is a question and that I don't know really where to start it.

So, I have a VCR and I don't use it anymore. I want to use Arduino to receive IR codes from remotes. I'm fine with the code in other forum topics. So, my question is, can I take the VCR IR receivers and use them in the Duino?



Does this help? Using IR modules from VCRs

I found it with a google search for “use vcr ir receiver”. This forum post was the first hit and the URL above was number 5.
