Does anyone know the carrier frequency of the IR keyboard and remote that come with the webpal? Is it ~38KHz similar to AV remotes like your TV and VCR use?
My Webpal is kind of out of the way, so I want to wire in an external detector to the IR receiver pads. To do so I need to know the carrier frequency so I can order an additional IR detector, such as the Vishay TSOP17xx or similar. I'm assuming the little silver box on the IR reciever pads is sending a demodulated signal to the AT89C52; does that sound right?
On a related note; has anyone co-opted their webpal keyboard and remote for use in controlling their regular PC via LIRC or Girder?
Thanks in advance for any info.
