Infra Red Remote

Hello hoping someone can help me with regards to the IR remote function on WLED.

I have had for a few months now a SK6812 led strip and dig uno. I then decided to add an IR remote to this set up. And it has worked flawlessly for about a month.

I then added WLED to home assistant yesterday and now I’ve lost IR functionality. I’ve tried switching gpio pins and power and ground but it just doesn’t work.

I thought that it could be the remote battery but I’ve only had the remote for 1 month and probably gets picked up and used 5 times a week or so.
