Hi all,

I need some help here to understand how exactly lirc work and how it's interact with FTDI device.
I have a FTDI FT232RL according to lsusb.
Bus 003 Device 006: ID 0403:6001 Future Technology Devices International, Ltd FT232 USB-Serial (UART) IC

According to dmesg, the device is bind to /dev/ttyUSB0.
[  207.813468] usb 3-3: Detected FT232RL
[  207.813478] usb 3-3: Number of endpoints 2
[  207.813485] usb 3-3: Endpoint 1 MaxPacketSize 64
[  207.813492] usb 3-3: Endpoint 2 MaxPacketSize 64
[  207.813498] usb 3-3: Setting MaxPacketSize 64
[  207.814818] usb 3-3: FTDI USB Serial Device converter now attached to ttyUSB0

I understand the device is handle by ftdi_sio kernel module and so the device /dev/ttyUSB0 is a character device.

According to this arricle http://www.huitsing.nl/irftdi/, lirc as a user driver for it : ftdi.

I compile lirc v0.9.0 with ftdi driver.
./configure --with-driver=ftdi

To test it, I ran sudo ./daemons/irrecord -H ftdi ~/test. Then I'm asked to press some buttons, and I receive the following error :
Press RETURN now to start recording.
./daemons/irrecord: no data for 10 secs, aborting
./daemons/irrecord: gap not found, can't continue

Here my questions:

Notice : The FT232RL come embedded in a Moneual MonCaso 312.

Kernel version  2.6.32-28-generic

Using libftdi1 v0.18
