I’m trying to get the Actisys IR210L (http://www.actisys.com/Documents/ACT-IR210LManual-v1.5.1-060214A.pdf) working with Ubuntu Fiesty Fawn and was wondering if anyone has had any success. The IR210L plugs directly into the motherboard and I’ve verified that it works properly by booting into Windows and using windows IR to transfer a file.

 

Here’s what I’ve tried so far:

 

modprobe lirc_sir

dmesg shows:

 

lirc_dev: IR Remote Control driver registered, at major 61
lirc_dev: lirc_register_plugin: sample_rate: 0
lirc_sir: I/O port 0x03e8, IRQ 4.
lirc_sir: Installed.

 

After doing this, I now have a /dev/lirc0. I then tried running

 

irrecord –device=/dev/lirc0 foo.conf

 

But I’m unable to get it to recognize any button presses on my remotes (tried multiple). It keeps aborting after 10 seconds of no data.

 

Any ideas on what else I can try? Thanks in advance for any help.
