Hello all, quick question because this circuit doesn't seem to be working at all... I bought a few IR LEDs to attempt a few of the projects located http://johnnylee.net/projects/wii/" and for some obscure reason none of them are working. I hooked a AAA cell (multimeter rates it at 1.2 V) to a simple circuit featuring my IR LED and a switch. The description that came with the LED rates the forward voltage at 1.2 V, so I shouldn't be frying it, but the stupid thing won't light up. Before you ask, I tried it both ways, and my method of making sure it worked was aiming my camcorder at it. Tested to work on both my TV remotes and the Wii sensor bar. Any ideas? I don't claim to know much about electronics, but according to my experience this should be working..
