Micro question - IR LED

by Killa-X on Mon Jun 23, 2008 12:59 am

I've try'ed circuits that are super easy, like the 9V IR LED-LED. so when u flash a TV remote near it, it blinks. Now i was told its not the blink rate, but its data being sent.

2 questions:

1: Is it possible just to hook it to my micro, and notice different blink rates on each button on my TV remote? I have a LCD suing Bascom, and im able to do inputs like showing buttons on/off and stuff. so i would get the Blink rate shown on the LCD, and make a if blink= 50 then _____

IF it still sends bits to my Micro... How could i get these bits? like know what it's sending?

To figure out what it is sending would be somewhat hard. You need some way to record the flashes and figure out what it means (its probaly in binary)
