DIY wireless remotes?
« on: February 28, 2007, 08:22:13 PM »
I was thinking about bidding on the Technics wired remote on ebay the other day when I remembered something I was researching a while ago. Why would anybody in the 21st century spend a hundred bucks on a wired remote for something that just opens and closes a circuit? All of the RS series machines have a 12 pin socket on the back for plugging one of these remotes and the service manual even shows which pin is what. The only thing in the circuit that isn't a switch is a diode in the "stop" mode. I done a little surfing and searching but I haven't found an remote with a programable receiver (doesn't even need to be programable). Any ideas?

Dang, you guys are too fast for me! Give me a little time, I'm already working on sourcing one, a multi channel RF remote setup. I'll fill you guys in as soon as I acquire it.

Vellman makes 15 channel IR remote control kits - transmitter is the K6710; receiver is the K6711.  Receiver outputs are open collector transistors - which should be easily adapted to operate most solid state tape decks.
