Infrared Receiver for Raspberry Pi 3

Wed Jun 15, 2016 3:16 pm

Good evening everyone,

Am a few hours old into my RPi journey. Managed to get things up and running and would like to ask if there are other IR receivers besides the RemotePi Board.

Thanks in advance.

I have one of these HX1838 based units. Works well and you get a remote control included.

Thank you all for your replies and suggestions... does an USB alternative (like Flirc) for work just as well?

The above can be connected using cables, no soldering needed, right?

Correct - they generally come with a couple of leads that you can push into the GPIO pins (unless you are using RPi0 that has no pins without soldering).
You can see one here along with how I chose to take input from it.

Hi Paul,

Thank you so much for the link and great knowing that the cable come along with it. Can I ask what IR receiver do you use for your setup?

This thread coming back to life brought to my attention that I missed a question long ago.
I am pretty sure I used a TSOP38238
Do not rely on cables being shipped with it though. I think I bought a couple of others long after that article and there were no leads.
