For instance if you press “down” and the menu selection moves down two items or if you press “pause” and the recording immediately pauses and then starts playing again. If you have more than one input device on your system, the numbering may change from one reboot to the next. You should see something like this:. 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 can set the time between the keypress event and the first repeat event and the time between each repeat event. The next step for my web controlled universal remote project is going to be finding or creating remote files for all of the IR devices in my house.

Update: Adding a receiver

Most channel numbers are more than one digit, and you may have to pause between digits. Generally speaking everything that can receive or send infrared signals can be supported by Inpuh.

Wikipedia has an article on: To determine the driver to use you might need to know the name of your capture device, what module the kernel has loaded for it and the kernel device it’s connected to.

The above failed for me for two reasons – one, my device is not an S-plus, inupt two, I have more than one of the same card.

Setting Up LIRC on the RaspberryPi

Run these two commands to stop lircd and start outputting raw data from the IR receiver: After this, check the driver and device using using e. This page is up-to-date as of MythTV version 0. Using that, pressing an up-arrow on the remote works the same way as pressing the up-arrow on a keyboard. Conflicts on serial ports can be handled by disabling the kernel serial driver for that port.

There are some ways to find or create such a file. I highly recommend referring to the schematics I linked to above.

Example of build commands is below. This page was last modified on 9 Augustat If your frontend and backend are the same machine then the same LIRC instance can be used for both IR blasting and receiving at the same time. This document was created by man2htmlusing the manual pages. Sign up or log in Sign up using Google. As a starter, it can use all devices supported by the ibput.

This section is parsed by the lircd-setup tool which runs as root when lircd is started. Wiring up the IR transceiver June 8th Update: When using serial or parallel port hardware the proper kernel module must be loaded with correct options.

However, in complicated cases like these you might be better off creating jnput fixed device name using a udev rule. Furthermore, since ir-keytable finds the device you know that the driver is part of the rc subsystem. Besi thank you so much. If you are to use the devinput driver, read on.
