How to build a simple but cool IR (Infra Red) receiver.
We now have some "skeletons" of the circuit that have to be inserted in the serial box. Try to make the circuit as "thin" as possible to avoid problems when closing the box.
The circuit explained
IR-receiver and voltage regulator
Diode and resistor
The wire and the capacitor
Mounting it inside the box
Placing the IR receiver
The software for Linux: Lirc
