Using a Logitech Harmony RemoteApr 16, 2014 Our IR receiver works with LIRC and is able to receive the signal from almost any remote, if configured properly. Many of our customers who bought the receiv..
This little board plugs right into the Raspberry Pi's GPIO connector and decodes infrared signals sent to it from just about any generic IR remote control. This IR receiver is tuned for a 38kHz carrier frequency but it will accept IR frequencies slightly above or below that at the cost of a reduced range. The IR stream is fed to the Raspberry Pi on GPIO #18, which is the default pin used by the Raspberry Pi's LIRC GPIO driver.
