IR Receiver 1838 finally working - How to contribute the code?

Post by jintolonappan » Mon Feb 15, 2021 4:52 am

Hi - After spending several hours, I was able to get the generic IR receiver 1838 working with Pico. Quality of data seems to be dependent on the quality of remote quite a bit. I was able to get consistent reads for my TV remote, whereas the remote came with Elegoo kit was spotty.
Such Rx of converting values to hex may be obvious to experts. However, as for us beginners it may be useful if it is available to reuse.

Can I contribute this code to a relevant micropython repo? Or uploading to my own GH is better? I went through the contribution guidelines and couldnt get a clear answer.

I hope to make github.com/micropython/micropython-lib a better home for these sorts of thing....eventually. But in the meantime, your own personal github is probably a better idea. If you link to it here then people will be able to find it.
