Hello,

I am trying to interface IR remote control(NEC Protocol) using 16f887 pic microcontroller. Coding objective is to read the IR signal and has to be display the equalant HEX value of command and address. While testing in hardware IR signal is not detecting but got random output. Tried a lot to solve the issue but failed. Here I have attached the coding kindly help me out. Thanks in advance.

The project will still not work.

You have failed to enable RBIE before the while(1) loop.

What CPU clock frequency are you using?

* Yes sir, as you said output is not coming after changing the while condition. Not even random output is received.
* Mu cpu clock frequency is 1.8 GHz.
* IF I enable RBIE before loop, lcd is simply remains blank. nothing works.

Help me out..

Wow! That's a fast PIC!

I think hexreader was referring to the PIC clock frequency not your PC.

Brian.
I was thinking the same brain, My MCU frequency is 8 MHz.

Your code seems hopelessly confused.

You enable RB0 external interrupt and PORTB interrupt on change, yet you handle only interrupt on change.

Why are you using both sorts of interrupt?

Where is the code for changing from falling edge detection to rising edge detection?

Did you write this code, or did you find it on the internet?

hexreader,

I got this code from internet. While trying to execute in hardware I got this sort of problems. I already wrote a code for simple interrupt and executed successfully. But this seems bit of complication, so decided to take code from web. But still I can fix the issues if you guide me...

You should have left that code where it was. It is complete garbage.

I am close to a fixed version, but it currently works for one IR remote that I own, but not a second TV remote.

Not sure if this forum allows zip file to be attached, but I will try....

Hexreader,

Many Thanks for sharing the code. I will test and update you for the same.

Hi hexreader,

It is working :) but most of the times it gets strucked, after few button press. Then we have to restart it again to accept signal. What could be the issue. I'm attaching my hardware image kindly suggest the suitable solution. Thanks in advance. 1566039875540338775620074404473.jpg

Yes, I have exactly the same problem. It is a software problem, not a hardware problem

Still working on it....

May take a long time, as I do not fully understand how the original code was supposed to work and it is all a bit of a mess.

Hexreader,

Thanks for your assistance. I will try the same from my side and update to you with progress.
