Lifting this limitation is one of the todo items for future releases. Verify the results using irw 1 in another window. This process starts by configuring the video source in the Mythtv-setup program to use an an external channel changing program. LIRC is a software package that gives your computer the ability to send and receive infra-red remote control signals when combined with appropriate hardware. If you don’t see anything, try to find out: Examples includes the groups lock , input and dialout but ultimately depends on the distribution. These should be made accessible using udev rules.

If it does not exist you have to build the staging drivers, also outside the scope of this document.

Note that the use of this package is contingent on your remote being properly installed and working. Using the same one for both will only cause frustration, since your commands to MythTV will be received also by the cable box and the commands from the backend will be seen by the frontend. This was a problem for me with MythTV 0. If irw does not generate the expected output though, not all is lost — see the mode2 command below.

I tested that this was working by pointing the IR led at my Yamaha receiver and testing whether I could turn it on and adjust the volume.


The default port is First, you should read. List all non-standard symbols in lircd. You can have a pile of remote control devices from different manufacturers and use any or all of them to control mythtv at the same time.

Setting up LIRC on the RaspberryPi –

Since this depends on how the device is connected, you lose if you disconnect the device and reconnect it to another socket.

Pressing buttons should give something like:. The second way to run irexec is to run it as a part of the session. Badly formatted quotes in the config files caused some troubles that took me quite some time to resolve. Comparing the different outputs might give a clue. If this becomes a problem, you should address the device using it’s name or it’s physical bus ijput. Another method is to boot the system without the usb device connected, and do a lsmod.

So, while the kernel built-in handling works out of the box in many cases, there are still scenarios when LIRC is the right tool.

Welcome to the LIRC 0.10.0rc1 Manual

Point a remote control at your IR receiver and press some buttons. So you can’t daisy-chain lircds. Select inupt function you want to invoke and look at the up to 4 key assignments at the bottom of the screen.

I chose the RaspberryPi because I wanted a single device to host a web server in addition to being able to handle the IR transmitting and receiving. The lurc directory contains a file lirc.


If you have several devices with the same name you need to use the address instead. For known cases the lirc-setup tool generates blacklisting configuration files. In manual sort mode the remotes are used in the order they appear in the config file.

Another example is lirc inpuf drivers which conflicts with the kernel default tty driver. The LIRC project began as an attempt to create drivers for home-brew hardware.

Sign up using Facebook. It was really helpful for me. Inut a starter, it can use all devices supported by the kernel. The easy way to check is to try the remotes without lircd running. The script lirc-config-tool helpful here. At that time the focus of the project was to provide an infrared solution that was both very cheap and easy to assemble.

It must also use standard key symbols from the ligc as described above.
