I'm trying to make an infrared receiver using a PIC18F2550 microcontroller connecting to the computer through the USB port. I will be using a Sony remote for sending the infrared signals. Will a simple IR phototransistor do the job? ie. will it be accurate enough and will I be able to stand on the otherside of the room and use the remote effectively?

Is something like this adequate? http://www.electro-tech-online.com/custompdfs/2009/07/L-53P3C.pdf
