I am very new to the lirc world and I am facing some problems. I have mythtv installed and my sat provider uses a variant of the Pace DS830 stb. It looks like this:
, and is described as HD 831 in my providers site (
The computer has opensuse 11.4 x86_64 (184.108.40.206-1.2).
I installed the media_build dvb drivers (
). I installed lirc 0.9.0.
In /dev I have:
crw------- 1 root root 249, 0 Μάι 17 10:39 /dev/lirc0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 19 Μάι 17 10:39 /dev/lircd -> /var/run/lirc/lircd
My /etc/lirc/hardware.conf is:
#Chosen IR Transmitter
I copied the lircd.conf from
and I also included in it the remote that is described in the DS830NS pace remote file (which I found when I unzipped the remotes.bz2 archive).
The script that sends the poweroff commands fails to interract with the stb (the light blinks but there is no response).
I tried using irsend with the remote described in the pace file but failed.
# irsend SEND_ONCE Pace_DS830NS ok
irsend: command failed: SEND_ONCE Pace_DS830NS ok
irsend: transmission failed
Is this because the lirc_zilog module doesn't undersand the language in the pace remote?
Am I missing something? Can someone point me in the right direction?
I wrote to the mythtv users list but got no reply.
Thanks in advance,
