Decoding Any Black remote or White remote with Arduino

This video shows you how to decode codes of Black Remote or White remote using Arduino. You need to install the library from the provided link. Also you will learn how to decode any remote controller using Arduino.

In the code you have to select type of your remote. If your remote is black, select 'B' and if your remote is white select 'W' in the code. Also you have select the type of receiver you are using. If you are using PCB version of receiver, then set PCB = 1 and set it =0 if using NON-PCB module.

Receiver:

The receiver has the model HX1838 or VS1838B either on PCB or without PCB. In both cases you will see them with 3 pins. Please watch video for instruction


Source code for decoding Infrared remote controller using Arduino


 /*
 * Original code and library from - http://arcfn.com
 * 
 * This code decodes for keys of Black IR remote and White IR remote
 * sold on eBay for Arduino. 
 * You have to select the type of your remote as Black or White in the code bellow
 * and also select your receiver 1838 either as PCB or bare module. See video for details
