Hydra & IR Receiver Module with Remote


#1

I have FEZ HYDRA and IR Receiver Module with Remote (http://www.ghielectronics.com/catalog/product/360). Could you please write a small example how to “read data” sent from the included small remote? I am unable to find it anywhere :frowning: Thank you very much!

Welcome to the forum.

Have a look here: http://www.tinyclr.com/support
There are plenty code examples

Dear Eric! Thank you very much for fast reply! I have spent a couple of hours looking through the examples and documentation, but so far I have not found anything specific about this remote control. I found a plenty of info about interfacing to different TV remotes, but I am wondering if there is an easy way to get the buttons pressed on the supplied remote - since it is a part of the IR Receiver module, I thought others might use it to trigger events, etc.

Maybe have a look here http://gadgeteer.codeplex.com/SourceControl/changeset/view/16948#216084
and adapt the timings for your remote

Guys, I know there are tons of resources but this is gadgeteer module so there is an included driver that died it all.


#6

Gus, I don’t have any Gadgeteer stuff, but was just trying to help. I will avoid that in the future.

@ EriSan500 (Eric)

No please do help. You actually pointed him to gadgeteer codeplex anyways. I am just saying, with gadgeteer it is a bit easier to get started with included drivers and integrated designer. I am sorry if my reply didn’t sound good.

There is an included sample on Codeplex: (http://gadgeteer.codeplex.com/SourceControl/changeset/view/16948#216048) that shows how to read the input, and it also shows you how to reprogram the remote if you happen to set it to something other than what the driver can interpret.
