5.2. The Infrared Receiver

Let's begin by assembling the IR receiver. I was able to get everything I needed at my local Radio Shack, with the exception of the voltage regulator. I had to go to another electronics supplier in my area for that. If you live in New England, You-Do-It Electronics is a great source for electronic components but, alas, they don't carry IR receiver modules, so there's no one-stop shopping here.

As just mentioned, you can purchase completely assembled receivers online and jump right to the software phase of this project. Exhibit B lists some sources if you want to go this route.
