Need help with my IR project

Hi everyone, I am new to this website, if I post it at the wrong place,please understand,sorry.

my problem here is I current working on a Infrared control car project as part of my school work, but somehow I could not get the Infrared reciver working. 

Detail:

For the car control I used a picaxe 08M; For the car I used picaxe 18x with the infrared reciver (don't know the model,but this is what is behind the component '1B79 68A')
