Arduino-IRremote multi-protocol IR library

Ken Shirriff has posted an Arduino-IRremote library. “This IR remote library lets you both send and receive IR remote codes in multiple protocols. It supports NEC, Sony SIRC, Philips RC5, Philips RC6, and raw protocols. If you want additional protocols, they are straightforward to add. The library can even be used to record codes from your remote and re-transmit them, as a minimal universal remote.”

You can read more about the usage and development of this library on Ken’s Blog page.

Of course for dedicated IR hacking without an Arduino there’s always the USB Infrared Toy.

    What ever happend to the IR shield? I know hardware wise it should offer the same features as the IR Toy, but what about the software end?

  2. Stino says:

    I have made an port of the infrared remote library from Arduino to Pic18F2550 to use it directly with the “USB Infrared Toy” for one of my hobby projects (I add an small OLED display with SPI to the board and use it without any PC).

    It can be found here:

    hey bro
    I would like to use the Attiny 84 to controll motors with an ir controller it work’s with the Arduino but not with the tiny84 the are many errors why ?
