IR on Circuit Playground Express

Can bright neopixels interfere with IR reception? When I have them all flashing red the IR reception doesn't seem to work well on signals from a mini remote.

Flashing red, and IR (InfraRED)... I'd say yes.

Sorry... my issue wasn't interference. Using the sketch with delays tied up the CPE and it could not read IR reliably. Changed to using millis and not delay cleared up the problem.
