Problem with grove infrared receiver


#1

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,

Kevin

Hey Kevin,
Can you post a picture of your setup. We have an example here: https://github.com/DexterInd/GrovePi/tree/master/Software/Python/grove_ir_receiver but have only tested 1 remote with it. If you are running your own remote then you’ll have to follow the instructions here: http://alexba.in/blog/2013/01/06/setting-up-lirc-on-the-raspberrypi/ to get it working.
