Channel Surfer question

Post by bconroy » Fri May 06, 2011 2:45 pm

The Feb. 2011 issue has an article by Andy Sullivan "Arduino channel surfer and other diabolical gadgets". The part number for the Arduino Mega board seems to be obsolete. I was wondering if all of the other boards would take the code or if only some boards would work? Also, the hookup of the IR to the board was not in the diagram. Is the hookup & other hardware information in the download section? My TV remote does not use the universal codes found in independant remotes so I want to capture the propriority IR fields for on/off, volume up/down etc. and then I want to set up a board that receives a universal remotes on/off/ volume IR pulses and translates those commands then sends the TV IR pulses to the TV. Can I do that with a smaller cheaper Arduino nano board?
