Hi,

I now have an Ocelot and i'm ready to buy IR stuff like a connecting bloc and emitters.

My local supplier suggest me to buy a Channel Vision connecting bloc (IR-1002) and some emmiters (IR-3002). He says that this one's working with the Ocelot.

I need 2 IR Sensors to return the IR signal from the Kitchen and the living room to the Ocelot thru the connecting bloc.

Is there another alternative than the Ir-2001 that sell for 66$ Canadian each? How can i build one myself?

Thank you,

Stephane.

The IR2001 contains an IR receiver module, a voltage regulator and an LED....about $5.00 cdn worth of parts.
If you're inclined, you can build one yourself.

Stef,

Go to the Applied Digital support board.

This has been discussed several times before and there are others on there who can definitely help you out with this.

Also Guy Lavoie has posted a circuit to create an IR blaster for the Ocelot that others have said works very well. I haven't yet started using my ADI stuff for IR, though hope to be able to do so in the next few weeks.

The URL for the board is:
