Great tutorial! I broke apart a small IR Helicopter toy I had around. I used its IR sensor for this tutorial. What's strange, is the IR Sensor won't detect any signal from it's original remote, but it reads signals from any other TV remotes I got hanging around.Anyone has any clue what I can be missing?The Remote has 3 "chanels" or 3 comm protocols so that you can fly up to 3 of these things without the signals interfering, but the IR sensor won't pick up any kind of signal whatsoever!Cheers again for this great piece of info!
I was also having this issue, I however realised it was because of the batteries in the remote were dying. Swapped them for new ones and they now detect a steady hex!
