Remote Control Your Computer Using Arduino

This week I used a Teensyduino to act as a translator between an infrared remote control and my computer.  The Teensy reads the infrared signals from the remote control and then emulates a USB computer keyboard.  I'm using it to control VLC Media Player using my remote control instead of the keyboard commands.

    Having some issues with this. Using the Teensy 3.1, soldered the pins to Vcc, ground and digital pin #13. Changed the code to reflect the pin value and I'm still not getting any signal any the serial monitor. Double checked the pinout on the IR sensor and that was all fine...also ran another test sketch on my teensy and that worked fine in the serial monitor. Any ideas?
