For example you can control your home cinema settings (volume, play, pause, stop etc), your winamp etc. It uses for receiver TSOP 1738 (38 KHz) but it worked well with TSOP 1736 (36 KHz) and a remote Sony which works at 40Mhz. The two transistors light up the led when a signal is received. Any kind of led will fit.
