    I think I read somewhere that you made yourself a IRMan? if thats the case lemmie know and I can help you out.


    for the IRMan you can just use the MSComm ActiveX control that comes shipped with Visual Studio/Basic with some really basic code....

    if thats what your after let us know...

    this wont work very well at all, espically in the car environment. get an IRMan - otherwise I cant help you anymore.

    i found another whay to get the input from the receiver. since it sends the data directly to the serial port i used a serial communicaion source code but my problem is still the same . > i dont get the same response each time i push the same button i think i'll just wait to get an IRMAN instead

    now I understand your problem! narr.... you will not often get the same signals in a row. The IRMan has the advantage that it uses a crystal to keep its detection circuit a very precise time interval.

    A software based system is gonna suffer quite a bit from timing changes. I did once try what you wanted to do, using a 555 timer as an external clock, but even so I need to write software to filter out bad codes and accept good ones.. In the end I got it working about 70-85% accurate.

    then I put it in the car, and nothing!!! thus the need for the IRMan.... save yourself heartache, get an IRman!
