Hi,

I have developed the LED Array kit with scrolling display. Now i'm looking to expand it so that it has some pre-programmed messages which I can display using a remote control. Could somebody suggest how I install and control this remote control unit so that I'll be able to choose the message to be displayed by the remote control?

Thanks

Are you thinking of using a Infra Red remote?

Do you want to just send on off or send a code to perform some action?

Have you searched the Nerdkit forum for "remote" there are a lot discussions about using a remote.

Yes i'm thinking of IR remote. I basically want to store a set of messages on the chip and using the remote, I want to select any particular message (among the stored ones) to be displayed at a given time.

Yeah will search the forums...Thanks

Lava.
