What I meant to say will the software still work if you hook up the electronics to the same wire numbers as depicted on the project page.

which commands are you using?  Are they ones for controlling the player (eg play, pause, stop etc)?

maybe you could try setting winlirc to run in high priority so that it always gets priority over other stuff...

I have found that if your CPU if busy the reciver waits untill there is free time to process, so if your are using something that is using alot of cpu switch if off....
This is what I have found anyway.....

Im still trying to work out how to put the leds on.....

/me gets confused with the sealions :P
/me still can't get one to stay still long enuff to fit it in the beetle.

I was wondering if anyone has gotten the RadioShack (part #: 276-640) infrared reciever to work? If not, where can I get one that will work? I saw the list of recievers, but I don't know where I can get them. If someone would care to point me to a retailer who sells infrared recievers that will work with this project.

Thanks.

BTW, real great site and I really like the mods. I came over from TechIMO.com

it might be mentioned somewhere, not sure.  But snow_veil tried to use a receiver from radio shack and wasn't successful as well.  you can check this page here for possible alternatives:

http://lirc.org/receivers.html

Some of them (especially the top ones in the list) are hard to find because they are mostly discontinued.  But I know Digikey.com has some of those Panasonic receivers available.

Well actually, I didn't try the infrared reciever from radio shack. I asked if someone had gotten it to work because I had seen where snow veil had stated he didnt get it to work in the write up.

Alright, I'm off to digikey and I'll see what I can get. Thanks for the info.  :)

I just took the IR reciver from my tv (just died)

when I first looked at it I seen three wires comming out of the little metal box, and thought "yes this will work perfectly"

when I opened the box to get only the eye I noticed it only had two wires.

Now I was thinking I was screwed, then a thought occured to me.
The tv used it, and it does have three wires.

Now I've traced the lines and I am 99% sure I know which one is power (the + side of the caps connect to it)
and I'm 100% sure which is ground (the one that also connected to the shell)

so the last one would have to be data right?

What I'm wondering is, if I connect this thing could something get damaged?
