In last article I have described my first impressions with Edison 2.0. Now is time for first hiccup.
Because Edison is equipped with IR receivers it can receive signal from remote controls. It seems that from most of them - about 90%. I have tried unused small (10 cm) remote control from portable DVD player Sencor.
Unfortunately following code in EdBlocks did not fully work:
It was only blinking by LEDs every 3 seconds. But there were no response to the remote control buttons. It should beep 1 to 6 times depending on pressed button. I have tried 3 remote controls but there was no response.
Do not be silly as me and notice start position marks (arrow composed from Edison button shapes) on printed paper in point 2. Edison should move - counterintuitively - from right to left. Otherwise read code is wrong and remote codes will not work.
After this configuration I ran program again (just press triangle button on Edison) and Voila! it works.
