Ryde remote controls
The Ryde DATV receiver is designed to work with an Infrared remote control handset.
A Infrared sensor is needed on the receiver and can be one salvaged from an old consumer electronic part or purchased new - typical example is https://uk.farnell.com/vishay/tsop2438/ir-receiver-45m-0-12mw-m2-side/dp/4913097
These sensors are 3 legged devices with +ve, gnd and output which is connected directly to pin x of the RPi GPIO port.
Connect 5v to the device and use an oscilloscope to measure the voltage on the output - connect a 47K resistor to ground and check the level drops to 3.3v - if not adjust the resistor value to suit.
Remote control Handset
The following remotes are already programmed in to the standard firmware:
- Remote 1
- Remote 2
You can select the remote control by SSH in to the menu and selecting Remote Control......
Using a custom remote conrol
