How it works.
When you press volume up on the control it comes in contact with the volume up on the circuit board, Then the integrated board detects the button press and sends a group of binary numbers to the Led and then sends it towards the T.V as an infrared beam the T.V uses it's infrared receiver to receive and then convert the light ray back into an electrical signal then reads it as binary.
