Hello Forum,

I'm trying to remote control my robot through IR with a Sony remote control I found in my house (Sony Remote model number RM-Y168). It responds when I press buttons. But when I click on CH+/CH- and VOL+/VOL- like it says in the book for directional control, it doesn't do anything, my wiring is correct and so is my code. So what could be my problem?

The remote could be sending the wrong codes or your program could be incorrect.

What I would do is read through the documentation for the IR receiver here...

http://www.parallax.com/Store/Sensors/ColorLight/tabid/175/CategoryID/50/List/0/Level/a/ProductID/177/Default.aspx?SortField=ProductName%2cProductName

Then use a debug statement to see what code(s) are being sent by your specific remote.

Also for further information on this, there is all sorts of stuff on the net. A google.com search for the words...

ir remote control protocol

...will explain all about these things!

my code cant be wrong because I downloaded it from Parallax. I've tried everything, you can take a look at my code that I will now attach. Are you sure its not something with the remote?

FORGIVE ME EVERYONE. I have just made the most foolish and embarrassing error of my robotics career, I had the Boe Bot in first gear instead of second.

Sorry to everyone who tried to help. But it works now, just a foolish mistake.
