Problem in installing LIRC

Hi All,

I have been trying to install LIRC-0.6.6 package and I
followed the instructions given in the documentation
section of LIRC website. I have set my system to
runlevel 2 and restart it. However when I tried to
test the hardware and press the remote control nothing
shown in the monitor. I thought it should display the
pulses and spaces of my IR signal. I am using Philips
RC2882 remote control. I am not sure whether my
setup.sh is correct or do I need to recompile my
kernel. I am using Kernel 2.4.20-31.9 and My
distribution is RedHat Linux 9.0.

Anybody knows how to solve this problem, please
help...
I am very new to LIRC.

Thank you and Best Regards,
Helmi Kurniawan

Revised: Problem in installing LIRC

Hi All,

Sorry for reposting the email again. I tried to
explain my problem again.

I have been trying to install LIRC-0.6.6 package and I
followed the instructions given in the documentation
section of LIRC website.

However when I tried to type mode2, I got the
following error messages:

mode2: error opening /dev/lirc
mode2: No such device

When I compile there is no error message only when I
type mode2 then the message appear. I can find the
lircd and lircm in /dev (both 0 bytes). When I type
modprobe lirc_serial, it can't locate the module and
lsmod also show no module.

Can anybody advise me how to load the module?

Many thanks for your help.

Best Regards,
Helmi Kurniawan

by insmod on lirc_serial.o or modprobe lirc_serial

you did make install, didn't you? install does following, you could do it manually:

1. lirc_serial.o and lirc_dev.o is installed in /lib/modules/xxx/misc (xxx depends on kernel
version, could be read from /proc/version ("Linux version xxx.."))

2. then list of module dependencies (/lib/modules/xxx/modules.dep) is
updated by 'depmod -a'

and when depmod returns no error 'modprobe lirc_serial' should work

SIR IrDA

hello, 

for some time now I am using lirc and grow accustomed to it.
I have an external IR adapter connected to an SIRCON connector
on my motherboard. 

recently I have installed an intel motherboard and surprise
no SIRCON connector. 

I really want to continue to use the external IR adaptor because
of the range and size, is there any possibility to use the adaptor
with an standard RS232 serial port or better with an parallel port ? 

do I need an electrical converter or a translator, I have basic
knowledge of electronics so I could build one but I do not find any
documentation about electrical or protocol standards. 

thanks
Razvan Radu

MCE IR Blaster

Posted this to the MythTV list earlier today - it was suggested this was a
better place to look.

I came across this post a few days ago.
(http://mythtv.org/pipermail/mythtv-users/2004-February/033569.html)  It says
that there isn't any Linux support for the IR blaster that comes with the MCE
remote, but it is coming soon.

Just curious - is there any movement on it?  I seem to be hacing trouble finding
an IR blaster that will work my my setup and, since I have the MCE remote
already, it would just make sense to use this.

Thanks!
Jeff

Homebrew IR Transmitter - almost working

Hi,
I have built the simple IR Transmitter as described here http://www.lirc.org/transmitters.html and
shown here http://www.permutation.org/images/ir_transmitter.jpg.
I've installed a second instance of Lirc and I am trying to use the transmitter to change channels on my
Samsung SIR-300 DTV box. (lirc config file: SIR-S300W)

When I run remote_irsend, the channel changes approx 1 out of every 3 tries.
I am holding the transmitter about an inch away from the receiver.

I'm a bit stumped as to why it would work sometimes but not others.  
Are there any settings in particular I should experiment with in the config file?

Thanks in advance
Dave

Best way to get two IR Devices working with LIRC

Hi,

I have two devices, a hauppage PVR250 controller, which works great with 
LIRC (atrpms packages, fedora core 2), and I also have a Actisys 200L IR 
blaster for transmitting.

It looks like I need to run two instances of lircd, but some 
documentation I have come across implies I need to also compile a 
completely seperate version of the LIRC program stack. I would like to 
avoid this if I can.

I am hoping that this can be done with at most two daemons and their 
required device files and configurations. Am I correct? Is there any 
documentation that details getting two IR devices to work simultaneously 
with LIRC?

Thanks,

Terrence

RE: MCE IR Blaster

No, and it is likely there wont be any movement on it. There are three major
factors here:

1) The transmitter doesn't follow the same protocol as receives, and cannot
be analyzed without a USB analyzer (two people have tried to use software
analysis on windows MCE with no luck)
2) The hardware itself is custom designed by a certain large software
company, according to someone who opened their HW and reported their
findings back to me
3) I have been the only person (to my knowledge) trying to work on transmit
support, and my new (since march) employer would probably see it as a
conflict of interests for me to continue working on it. This has been one of
the limiting factors with me maintaing the mceusb driver (thanks to malte
rohde for picking up 2.6 support)

When i wrote the email you referenced, i was not aware of #1 and #2, and #3
had not happened yet.

It is possible that someone, equipped with a hardware USB analyzer and a lot
of patience, could determine the protocol and add transmit support to the
driver. Obtaining a hardware USB analyzer, even on a rental basis, is
prohibitively expensive for a hobbyist.

Thanks,
-Dan
