I'm tired of these complicated tutorials on how to use certain things. I like simple, easy to understand, step by step instructions. My biggest problem was with IR and POV*. I've finally mastered how to control my project with any TV remote in a few minutes. In this i'ble I'm going to show you simple, step by step instructions on how to control just about anything with your IR remote.
By the way this tutorial is new and updated and works! Last update [ 10/12/2015 ]
With the latest release of the Arduino IDE there is a conflicting library that renders this tutorial void. If you'd still like to use this tutorial delete the library called "RobotIRemote". This file will be in the Arduino program. Instructions for deleting this file is in step 3.
This library is for a specific robot that Arduino/venders sell. Unless you intend on buying that shield you can delete that folder and continue with this set of instructions. You can always download it again later!
