Problem with grove infrared receiver

I have a rpi3 running robots with latest patches. I have a grove IR receiver and an IR remote control that I cannot get to work.

I have the receiver hooked up to D7 and the example code set to D8. It runs but never gets a read.

Any thoughts on debugging? Both the receiver and transmitter are new so I’m wondering how to debug what is broken.

Best wishes,


Hey Kevin,
Can you post a picture of your setup. We have an example here: but have only tested 1 remote with it. If you are running your own remote then you’ll have to follow the instructions here: to get it working.
