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 [ 03/31/2015 ]
Now I've never tested this process on a windows but I know
that it works on a mac. It should be the same for windows, just delete any mac content in the zip.
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.
This library is for a specific robot shield 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!
