Cannot get Mini Remote to send signal to CPX IR sensor using

by Paco_Hanlon on Wed Apr 28, 2021 8:53 am

Hello!

I have been trying to get the adafruit mini remote (https://www.adafruit.com/product/389#technical-details) to send an IR signal to the IR sensor on the CPX, using MakeCode (since this project will be for younger children).

I have not been able to get the remote to successfully send ANY signal to the CPX. Are they not compatible? What do I need to do to make them compatible?

The code I used to test it is attached.

I'm not sure if anything has changed but Makecode and IR, RX from 2018 echoes my understanding, as does GitHub: microsoft/pxt-adafruit Support Adafruit mini IR remote #1071. You can comment on the GitHub issue to register your demand and interest in this feature.

Thanks. That does answer my question. I'm sad MakeCode doesn't support the remote, but c'est la vie. I think we're going to use two CPXs instead (one as the remote).
