I am trying to replicate the remote control for my Sony home theater system. I started with anaylzing the demodulated signal of power on button using a TSOP1738 IR demodulator(http://www.kynix.com/Detail/840529/TSOP1738.html). It looks like this:
You can see the signal (along with the decoded command). Next I replicated the signal using the Arduino (and as per SIRC protocol, chose 1/4 duty @ 38Khz). Below is the signal of a complete one to show the code sent and a zoomed one to show the 38Khz 25% duty burst within the signal.
Now to drive an IR LED using this signal, I fed this into a 2N2222 NPN BJT transistor's base with its collector connected to +5V and base to IR LED -> Series Resistance -> GND. And to test the signal I fed this "generated" signal through the TSOP1738 again and probed the output.
The signal I get looks like an IR signal except for the 1's (when TSOP1738 goes LOW) instead of being LOW for a duration, as in the first image. I see a lot of toggling going on:
The "generated" signal, of course, does not work. Any idea what's going in here ?
