    I'm starting for scratch knowledge wise.
    I want to modify a KVM (Keyboard, Video, Mouse) switch
    to receive discrete IR commands for switch to port 1 or 2.

    Current KVM switches take a series of strokes to switch
    Scroll Lock, Scroll Lock, 1 = port 1
    Scroll Lock, Scroll Lock, 2 = port 2

    I'd like to add a IR receiver to do this function.

    Just need to get the ball rolling.

    Thanks,
    Rey

    Go to www.jameco.com and look for the IR transmitter (part # 134543
    ) and the IR receiver (part # 134551). The receiver has either latching or
    pulse output, so you could connect in place of (possibly in parallel with) the
    existing switch control circuitry.
