Hi Jack// ani,
As artem suggests you don't need the num array. It's enough to shift left the temp variable. Setting DDRB register it's a must if you drive the LED directly. If you drive them through a driver (say a npn transistor) you don't have to bother since the internal MOS pull-up resistor will source the current to bias your transistor (10

As matbob said, the grounds of the two boards must be connected. The minimum cable between the two boards is at least two connections, clock signal and ground.
The other issue are the 10K resistors. I would definitely remove the 10K series resistor between to the input pin. The 10K pullup is also probably not needed if the avr pin is configur

I can't explain why the transistor turns on when the input is set to low.
The input current for the transistor should be 1/10 to 1/20 of the collector current to have a low voltage drop on the transistor (saturation) so a 470 ohm to 1K should be fine, the avr output can handle it.

Of course, you can do that like standalone circuit with or without mcu. Use any of above 3-pin ICs and connect them like on schematic and pass to mcu input pin or to base of some transistor.

You can also simplify it further, by connecting line 3 (--->>3) directly to RESET and eliminate the BC547 transistor(Q2) and R1&R2.
The transistor is just an invertor, and you need configure PonyProg to invert RESET signal.
I am using this simplified - only resistors and diodes - circuit since 2004, but only on avr microcontrollers.

I hope that you will be having the remote for the device you want to control.
In a fast micro like avr, write a cap-com type of program using dual Interrupt and find out the timing. Using this you can determin the type of code.
Next task is to make a 38KHz IR transmitter.
This would be easy if you have a PWM on the Micro you are using.

You can't be sure of that, you assume that each mcu pin can provide about 10mA and that the mcu can provide a total of 80mA (8 pins combined) when number 8 and the dot is turned on.
Not all MCU can provide that current, an avr or a PIC can but many others can'
