  • Anybody please tell me the format of the output generated by the remote . is it NEC or just a 32 bit data. I try to interface with XBee but it is not working because TSOP38238 IR receiver module is decoding the input from the remote . It is not understandable by XBee for serial read. Then I used MCP2120 to convert to UART but I want to know the format of remote so that I can able to decode the data.

  • I've used the examples to set up the IR receiver on one UNO and the IR transmitter on another UNO. I can get the receiver to recognize the output of the transmitter as long as they are about 6 inches apart or less. How do I get the type of range of transmission that the remote gives me? I need across-the-room type of range -- like 15 feet or so. Thanks in advance for helping out!

  • I can get the sketches to compile on my Uno, but I cant get them to compile on my Leonardo. Does anybody know why?

  • Hello

    I saw your good site Can you help me to decode an remote IR signal ?

    Here is what i did :

    1. Increase the Rawbuf to 250 because my signal seems to be more longer than 100.

    2. Load the IRremote: IRrecvDump sketch

    3. Capture the signal (below)

    50A4250F Unknown encoding: 50A4250F (32 bits) Raw (250): -23928 3400 -1700 500 -1200 450 -1250 450 -400 450 -400 550 -350 500 -1200 500 -350 450 -400 450 -1250 450 -1300 400 -450 500 -1200 450 -400 450 -400 550 -1200 500 -1200 450 -400 450 -1250 450 -1250 450 -400 450 -450 400 -1300 450 -400 450 -400 450 -1250 500 -350 450 -450 500 -350 450 -400 450 -400 500 -350 500 -400 450 -400 400 -450 500 -350 500 -350 500 -350 500 -400 450 -400 500 -350 500 -350 500 -350 500 -350 500 -400 500 -350 500 -1200 450 -400 450 -400 450 -450 400 -450 500 -350 500 -1200 500 -350 450 -400 550 -350 500 -350 500 -350 500 -1200 500 -350 500 -400 450 -400 500 -350 500 -350 500 -350 500 -400 450 -400 450 -400 500 -350 500 -1200 500 -1200 450 -400 450 -400 500 -1250 450 -400 450 -1250 500 -350 550 -350 400 -450 500 -1200 450 -400 500 -1200 450 -1250 450 -1250 550 -350 400 -1300 450 -1250 450 -1250 500 -350 450 -400 450 -450 450 -400 500 -350 500 -350 500 -350 500 -350 450 -450 500 -350 450 -400 500 -350 500 -350 550 -300 550 -350 450 -400 500 -350 500 -350 500 -350 500 -400 450 -400 500 -350 500 -350 500 -350 500 -350 500 -350 500 -400 450 -400 450 -400 500 -350 500 -350 500 -350 500 -400 400 -450 500 -350 500 -350 450

    1. Remove the first -23928 and all the -

    2. Build and load this code

    include <IRremote.h>

    IRsend irsend;

    // setup my arrays for each signal I want to send unsigned int powerOn[250] = { 3400,1700,450,1250,450,1250,450,400,450,400,450,450,500,1200,500,350,450,400,500,1200,450,1250,550,350,500,1200,500,350,450,400,500,1200,450,1250,450,450,500,1200,450,1250,450,400,500,350,450,1300,400,450,500,350,500,1200,450,400,500,350,500,400,450,400,500,350,500,350,500,350,500,350,500,400,500,350,500,350,500,350,500,350,500,350,550,350,450,400,500,350,500,350,500,400,450,400,500,1200,500,350,500,350,500,350,550,350,450,400,500,1200,450,400,500,350,500,350,500,400,500,350,500,1200,500,350,500,350,500,350,500,350,500,400,500,350,500,350,500,350,500,350,500,350,500,1250,500,1200,400,450,500,350,500,1200,450,400,500,1200,550,350,450,400,500,350,500,1200,500,350,500,350,500,1250,450,1250,400,450,500,1200,450,1250,450,1250,450,450,450,400,450,400,500,350,500,350,500,350,550,350,450,400,450,400,500,350,500,350,500,350,500,400,500,350,500,350,500,350,500,350,500,400,450,400,500,350,500,350,450,400,500,350,550,350,450,400,500,350,450,400,450,400,500,350,550,350,500,350,450,400,500,350,500,350,500,350,500,350,500};

    void setup() { }

    void loop() { irsend.sendRaw(powerOn,250,38); delay(4000); }

    Nothing work , can you advise ? Thanks

  • So I had a few errors with the code. What should I do?
