I'm about to ask a question for the most common problem which everyone has with
attiny85 and the IR library. I will try to make this question as simple as possible.
Few things about the lib and the chip
First of all the lib https://github.com/shirriff/Arduino-IRremote works great on the
UNO and it's the best out there.
Attiny85 is the smallest chip you can get able to run Arduino code. It has alot of limitations but it worth it!
The common problem
Attiny85 uses different timers from the normal Attiny and Atmega chips which makes it impossible to run the standard libraries. There are some fixes for some libs. For example the
IR Remote has a version which ALMOST works with the chip and it can be found over here: http://gammon.com.au/Arduino/IRremote_Attiny.zip
However the problem lies in the core. The first time i used the patched
IR i had the
MIT High Low Media Group versino 1 of the core files which bearly worked but it was the first released so...
After reading this guide:http://www.instructables.com/id/Attiny-IR-library/?ALLSTEPS I used an updated core which can be found here: https://arduino-tiny.googlecode.com/files/arduino-tiny-0100-0017.zip
And the final problem
Even with the updated core i still got only 1 last error.
Compiling 'Shit' for 'ATtiny85 @ 8 MHz (internal oscillator; BOD disabled)' IRremoteInt.h:101: error: 'RAWBUF' was not declared in this scope Error compiling
Does anyone know how to fix it?
- MIT high-low group first version: http://highlowtech.org/?p=1229

- The IR original lib: https://github.com/shirriff/Arduino-IRremote
- Updated core: https://arduino-tiny.googlecode.com/files/arduino-tiny-0100-0017.zip
Just in case you wanna know i'm using the Atmel Studio 6 with the Visual Micro plugin instead of the crappy-arduino-IDE
