Building of the IR hardware for SimpleRemote should
be easy even if you have no experience or knowledge in electronics. You will need to
purchase two components, which are common and easy to get, and solder them. It is quick,
simple and - as far as we know - foolproof.
For easy, step-by-step instructions on how to build the circuit, go to the
how to build page.
DISCLAIMER To the knowledge of the project creators and maintainers, and
to the extend of our experience with many satisfied users over the world, there is
no risk in building this circuit, either to you or to your computer hardware, as
long as you follow the instructions. However, this is a community project,
and all the knowledge published here is being published by volunteering individuals
who are not, and can not be liable for any such damage, should it
occur. So if you are expecting any kind of guarantees, this is probably not the
product you should use.
If you are into hacking things, knowing how everything works, taking everything
apart - you may would want to know, what is the hack behind
You'd find most relevant documentation in the how
it works page. You would need deeper background in order to understand this; hopefully
not much more than basic understanding of electronics (highschool physics is
probably enough). If you have more questions, post them in the
