Control Servo motor using any Infrared Remote with Arduino

This video shows you how to control Servo motor using any Infrared Remote Controller such as your TV remote. 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.

Watch This video if you have any question about the code
