Well, yes I do. I should have mentioned that I've already been there,
and I bought the IR receiver from there. They do not have the TO-92
version of the 78L05 voltage regulator, though. I'd like that type of
case to try to fit everything inside a DB-9 hood. But back to your
question, Radio Shack does have everything that is needed, except that
you'll have to go with a bigger voltage regulator.
In any case, I ended up buying several parts from digikey.com, which
others mentioned. I bought enough to build a couple of IR receivers as
well as parts for another project.
Thanks for the suggestions guys.
