I have an issue here concerning Infrared and arduino, i have been disassembling various receivers and took out the IR sensor from them, but i have hard time to read any data from them.
this is my third attempt to take out a receiver from an older satellite receiver, basically what happens is nothing when i try to point any remote controll to the IR sensor, have tried various schemes but none of them is working.
would love to have some input if i do something wrong, do i need resistors or anything between the out signal and the digital input on the arduino boards or anything else?
Digital 38KHz IR Receiver, the entire IR sensor is black and seems to be encapsulated with a black molded box.
i have tried atleast 3 different arduino boards, all share the same issue on all 3 different IR sensors i tried
