Works well with Raspberry Pi A+ and LIRC

Straight-forward install to RPi A+ GPIO pins, just line up and press on. The shield includes a space for a second IR led and passthrough of some unused gpio pins. The CuteDigi tutorial and pinout were spot on. It does require the latest RPi firmware, upgrade it with rpi-upgrade if you encounter errors.
