The IR shield works great! I was able to decode my LG AC remote and control my AC on a timed schedule. Only issue was that I needed to use the A2 - A5 analog Arduino pins for my ds1307 RTC board, but they were taken up by the male headers on the shield. Would have been better if the IR shield came with female headers. Also would be nice if the the two LEDs were different colors.

Thank you for your feedback, we have updated the product based on your advice, now the unit is with female header.
