How to send numbers over IR with Arduino
When I buy a cheap remote from the store, and I run a IR receiving sketch, every time I push a button I get a series of numbers e.g. 1259575. Now I now how to receive IR.
But how do I transmit a number through IR? Every where I go it is outdated and doesn't work.
All of Ken Sheriff's stuff is sending special Sony, Panasonic and othercompany's codes. I just want to send a number.
I just want to hook up an IR LED to Arduino and have it flash a number! Simple, right?
