  • Compact IR Reciever

    Hi, I just found this product, I don't know if it has been listed here before but i like it over the IRMAN becasue of its compact size.

    http://myweb.tiscali.co.uk/dusan/ir_receiver_01.htm

    They have a USB and Serial Version. it costs about 35 dollars shipped to the US.

    It is compatable with Girder.

    I will be ordering one.

    thats very cool, I like the idea of USB

    That looks exactly like the one I use in my car except I built mine, works perfectly with girder.

    I was lucky enough to find the IR receiver in a directv unit I had.

        The guy's got auctions on eBay going for 4.99 + 2.90 S/H to US (British Pounds). In American $ this equals...$14.76 out the door. Not sure how important the USB version is to you.

              So with may calculation ($31.82 shipped) I will pay for the USB version and and have someone else make it for me for about the same price ($28 from your posted cost). Thats not Lazy, thats smart.

              So how much is your time worth? Obviosly less than mine

                  I built this one too. You can get all the parts at radio shack for under $10. It's easily assembled in less than 1 hour.

                      I built 2 of those base on the schema above cost about 15 or less for 2. All parts order from digikey at the same time I order parts for the Sproggy.

                      You can have all the supporting parts (resistor, cap, regulator, diodes all in the Serial D9 housing and extended the IR sensor with 3 wires to wherever you want.

                          nOObie chiming in! I understand the receiver part, but what remote do you use? I have 4 old Directv boxes sitting around with remotes. Do I make the circuit and load Girder and use the DTV remotes?

                            Where one gets a housing that is big enough for every thing, I looked all over, then again, I tend to miss things.

                              @kingtut: It should fit in just about any housing as long as you use the 78L05 and not the 7805.

                              @Dudes99: It should work with most remotes you have lying around. Some work on slightly different carrier frequencies than what the IR reciever uses but mine worked with every remote I had lying around.
