following on from an idea i saw on the main page, i would like to rear IR signals from an "all in one" remote i have knocking around.
When i was at school (some time ago) i made this circuit,
and i still have it. the first thing to throw me is, why all that circuitry for a fairly simple job?
also, the ir reciever has only two leads, not the three the internet suggests it should have. (i suspect this is related to the above)
I was hoping to cut the IR reciever diode off, and wire it up in the same way i would with a photoresistor and be able to read the signals with an arduino, but i suspect, i wont be able to do that?
can anyone shed any light?
