    Ok this is my first post!

    I am attempting to hack this IR controller cause I think it may be a handy little gadget later on.

    It was part of a Silverlit IR controlled mini vehicle.

    The board has 4 output M+, M-, L+, L-. M corresponds to the back wheels (front back) and L corresponds to the front wheels (left right). I hooked up the outputs as you see in the diagram into two analog Arduino inputs.

    When i move the dials of the remote there is a response however the output is goofy.

    here are the readings:
    Hit nothing ==> M:55, L:55
    Hit up ==> M:294, L:294
    Hit down ==> M:0, L:0
    Hit right ==> M:294, L:294
    Hit left ==> M:0, L:55

    Clearly this is not logical! Maybe you could offer some insight as to what could be going wrong...
