would this Infrared extender diagram work? Answered

i am wondering if this diagram would work or not. i am needing it to run off of 3(ish)volts and it needs to be small so i can put it on my palm zire 31 as a ir extender running off of sd card slot power. would this work? or would the other IR detector work? please help, anyone!

thanks in advance, z247

ps: i didn't boher with + and -, but i do know how to hook it up


No, you need something to remodulate the output of the detector.

No, a 386 is an amplfier. Jack's circuit will probably work.

I don't know how precise the frequency has to be.  Anyway, this idea to build on Kipkay's 555 circuit, linked above, is just an idea at this point.  I don't know if it would actually work or not.

You're wiring the IR detector as an LDR, which it isn't. This is what Steve means, ask him how.
