Hello Skooter Blog readers, Today I talk about a USB PC Remote Control Universal IR, driver need not (2 pilhas AAA) (Driver-free Universal USB IR Media Remote Controller for PC (2*AAA)) acquired on DealExtreme. This is the second such control that I buy, 've talked about the first two years ago in an article here on Skooter Blog.
Despite this PC Remote Control have a different SKU in DealExtreme is essentially the same product Another article. The only difference is that this has the inscription “PC Remote” below button set, and the number buttons has also written the lyrics for using standard T9 (like us cellular), whereas the Another article has only numbers. Said differences, I recommend reading the Another article to know the characteristics of PC Remote Control, because not repeat the same information here.
The purchase of this new PC Remote Control was somewhat equivocal. The old control began to fail and realized there was a bad contact in wireless receiver, close to the receiver. I then decided to cut that piece of wire and solder again plaquinha receptor. So far so quiet, sufficed peel 4 USB cable wires, remove the hot glue that held the cable and the old solder and solder again. When I called again the receiver into the USB port, Windows identified only as unknown device. I thought I had damaged some component and gave the receiver, I threw it aside and ordered a few days later PC Remote Control new in DealExtreme. But, before throwing out the old, I decided to do a test with the multimeter and realized I had reversed a wire when soldering (I forgot to write down the order and relied on memory). Fortunately I had only one inverted data wires to ground, if you had reversed the damage to the VCC could have been fatal for the plaque. There was enough de-solder the wires reversed and weld them back in the correct position. This was enough for the old control return to work perfectly. How to buy the new DealExtreme was already done and decided to wait to get the new leave PC Remote Control backup.
