I recently purchased a superheterodyne 433 MHz receiver, which I have used to decode a 433 Mhz button with rc_switch in ESPHome. I would now like to decode a 433 MHz remote but have not yet had any success; I do not get any output in the log when I press the buttons on the remote.
I’d be happy to go through the motions of adjusting tolerance, filter, etc. but I don’t know what each parameter means, nor do I know what the reasonable limits are. For instance, if I set the buffer to 20kb, what does that do, and is it more or less likely to help in my case? …perhaps I should start with a buffer of 1kb and stop at an upper boundary of 10kb (?), increasing the buffer by 1kb with every attempt (?). I’m flying completely blind.
Would someone be willing to point me toward some info on the Internet that will help me to understand these parameters so I can approach this more intelligently? Or, if not, perhaps someone would be able to tell me the boundaries I should stay within for each parameter?
