Has anybody connected their picaxe to a RadioShack 276-640? Its the IR reciever module you can pick up at any store ... and the only one I have access to.
I set it up with the same circuit shown in JKlug's walkthrough, but no lcuk
Can you post a link to a datasheet?
I also use a different IR receiver to what the manual recomends for the same reason (only one I could get easily). You need to have one that works at 38KHz if you want to use the IR commands.
