If there is no file for your remote in the database, or the one in the database uses RAW codes or does not work, you can create your own using irrecord.

LIRC – Linux Infrared Remote Control

The kernel may be listening to your remote as well as lircd. The lirc distribution contains an example rule which makes the lircd-uinput device writable for users in the group lirc. Wikipedia has an article on: On the other hand, this is flexible and since irexec runs as root it can in the end do anything.

The “Hardware” column should be obvious. If a plain file is given instead of a socket it is supposed to contain button press events formatted as documented in lircd 8. Besi 1 6 Finally I found this https: If it does not exist you have to build the staging drivers, also outside the scope of this document. This file will contain entries for each device type. On the other hand, lircd –uinput does not forward all events – the heuristics used has been changed over versions.



It needs to be inspected and tweaked before it actually does it’s job. But the vast majority inpht buttons should use standard symbols. Plus how can I interpret IR commands from an existing remote control. You must be running on the latest firmware and OS for this guide to work.

There are some ways to find or create such a file. The channel changing script turns that into an invocation of irsend, and LIRC transmits the appropriate codes via your infra-red jnput.

Setting Up LIRC on the RaspberryPi

Some links to build such:. For each device you want to use you have to setup an individual lircd instance.

List all non-standard symbols in lircd. The cable box may be in some incorrect mode such as On Demand and will not respond correctly to a channel number. I chose the RaspberryPi because Liirc wanted a single device to host a web server in addition to being able to handle the IR transmitting and receiving.

In practice it is more complicated. With this simple example working, you now need to create complete config files for your application s.


The kernel loads the appropriate driver for most modern, USB-based using udev hotplugging – as soon as the device is connected the corresponding inout module is loaded.

Make sure the name ends with. To help with installing you can use the checkinstall program, which allows you to install the package and also include lorc in the package management system for your distribution.

Recording works best if you hold the remote really close to the receiver. For instance if you press “down” and the lircc selection moves down two items or if you press “pause” and the recording immediately pauses and then starts playing again.

If your distribution includes an outdated version of LIRC, you may need to build it yourself. Refer to more generic udev docs. The lirc configuration consists of several files described in Appendix Verify the results using irw 1 in another window. Inpur you can learn that this file was recorded using the awlibusb driver. Make sure the lirc driver can read the remote, and produce pulses:.
