Quite a few IR related schematics on the Internet make use of the Radio Shack, Sharp, GP1U52X IR receiver/demodulator, but:
a) It seems like Radio Shack no longer sells this item
b) I live in Europe and it's quite expensive to order just a few items from the States if they WERE available....
Anyone knows another place where to buy this component? Anyone that has the perfect substitute? (I don't know enough of electronics to adapt the schematic to a new IR receiver)... Anyone willing to sell from his personal stock?
Please let me know, send me an e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
